Los Altos Hills Public Art Committee Is Reaching Out To Residents
The Town of Los Altos Hills was recently gifted funding to commission a major sculpture. Installation of the sculpture will be adjacent to our Town Hall and will remind us of who we are and what our Town stands for. Our chosen sculptor, Roger Stoller, has invited us to participate in the design of this complex artwork. We need your help to imbue this innovative sculpture with iconic images that tell our story and portray the values of our community.
Roger has been commissioned by a number of cities and organizations around the Country. At the bottom of this message are images of one of his sculptures, to be found on the Pacific Coast Highway (in the city of Carlsbad), titled, ‘Coastal Helix’. You can see his depiction of the area and the variety of forms that one might find along the coast. Roger will be integrating a selection of our contributed images suggestive of Los Altos Hills to create our own graphic narrative.
How do you participate? It’s easy. Imagine a simplified graphic rendering of an iconic image of Los Altos Hills. Send us a photo, or a sketch, of your idea(s) of what you feel represents your town. It can be something found in nature, in our town's history, the citizens, achievements of our residents, our community values, etc.
Examples of images could include:
Here are a few example images that speak to LAH:
- An apricot orchard or a small vineyard
- Hikers on a creek-side trail
- A child on a horse being led by a parent
- A couple riding a tandem bicycle
- Deer munching leaves from a bush
- Friends using social media
- Silicon Valley innovation and leadership
