“SEYMOUR DISCOVERY CENTER DONOR WALL”: These charming panels, created in 2000, are 18″ x 60″. They were designed to illustrate some of the many animals native to the Monterey Bay in California, some of which are studied by scientists at the adjacent Long Marine Lab at UCSC. The panels are a tribute to the many donors to the center. Their names were stacked in a wavy fashion to emulate kelp fronds. The dense design at the bottom of the panels is child height and intended to engage them in finding hidden creatures.
“LIVE OAK FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER DONOR WALL”: This donor wall for the community center was commissioned in 2011 to recognize donors to their capital campaign. It features a stylized tree that symbolizes the native oaks around the center, and their strength and longevity, while thanking generous donors to the center. A small acorn sprouts in the opposite corner, evoking continuity and the future.
“CALIFORNIA STATE SEAL”: This carved crystal California state seal is one of five commissioned by the Superior Court of Santa Cruz county for their Watsonville courthouse. The carved “starfire” crystal state seals are mounted on brushed aluminum stand-offs. Four of the seals are 36” diameter and placed behind the judges bench in each of the four courtrooms. A 42” diameter version graces the wall in the entrance lobby.
