There’s still time for residents to cast their vote for one of two pieces of original art, “Western Reel” or “Facing the Sun, Facing the Future,” to be displayed at the center of the new Roundabout project at the intersection of Main Street, Newhall Avenue and 5th Street.
Voting will remain open now through Saturday, August 31, at City Hall in the first floor lobby and online at the City’s new Arts & Events website.
Artist Michael Clapper’s “Western Wheel” represents an iconic sculpture that speaks to the early days of film making and Santa Clarita’s western film connection. Using imagery of an abstracted, spiraling piece of film, a stylized cowboy on a galloping horse will be the focal point on the film cells.
Artist M.L. Duffy’s “Facing the Sun, Facing the Future” reflects Santa Clarita’s past and optimism for the future. It is inspired by the first unique peoples and their original domestic architecture as it portrays the framework of willow poles in a circle bent in at the top to form a pointed dome.
