PUBLIC ART COMMISSIONS EXECUTED BY THE LAZZARI + EVANS DESIGN TEAM:
Civic Center Plaza, by City Hall, in Palmdale, CA
A permanent public art installation celebrates the movement of the sun and the beauty of the area’s desert wildflowers.
A 20-foot tall sculpture set in a concrete base. That sculpture consists of 5 large cut-out aluminum panels painted all over with familiar wildflower blooms to the area, with coreopsis, lupine, desert mallow, paintbrush plants and Joshua tree flowers.
The concrete base is etched with designs that show the direction of the sunrise and sunset on the longest day of the year, the shortest day, and the equinox. The logo of the City of Palmdale is etched opposite of the sun, reinforcing the association of the city with its natural environment.
Fairwind Project Tripointe Homes, Huntington Beach, CA
Seven panels ranging from eight to ten feet in height will feature themes of native birds and fish.
The Sculpture utilizes the reclaimed steel screen from the original site of the Lamb Elementary School.
City of Manhattan Beach Sculpture Garden, Manhattan Beach, CA
The sculpture represents three great (common) egrets, which are year-around residents in the Manhattan Beach area, and all along much of the West Coast. We show them flying away from clumps of reeds, where they forage for food.
