Art Wall Update ~ July 2012
In-studio work continues on the beautiful Citrus
Ranch Art Wall by our selected artist, Mike Tauber.
In May, the ad-hoc committee had the opportunity
to attend our artist's Annual Spring Open Studio
Exhibition in Laguna Canyon. Along with work
by twenty other artists, we had the chance to see a
section of our art wall in Mike's studio. The
section has had a single firing and the vivid lemons
on the right section were a sight to behold!
Mike works exclusively on Italian procelain tile and
says "Our entrance mural is reminiscent of packing
crate labels produced in Southern California in the
mid-twentieth century. It will welcome
visitors into the park by highlighting three of the
parks unique features: Rustic stone
structions, the panoramic views of the landscape,
and a close up view of live citrus. The mural offers
bold, readable visuals from far away and amazing
detail from up close. The colors convey a
historic palette, and the tile finish has a smoothe,
low relief texture that is comfortable to touch.
We think you will agree that Mike's approach to
our Art Wall and his body of work will be an amazing
and lasting feature to the park site. Being
the first privately funded artwork in a Tustin park
will also celebrate our city's Parks & Recreation
Departments motto that "Parks Make Life Better!"
