The City of Santa Clarita is inviting the community to attend the dedication of the newest public art piece, “Friends,” on Wednesday, January 12 at 3:30 p.m. at Canyon Country Park. The afternoon will include light refreshments, a meet and greet with the artist, and provide the opportunity to view the latest addition to the City’s Art in Public Places Program.
“Friends” is a large-scale art project that was designed for, and installed in, the lower section of Canyon Country Park, in the grass area adjacent to Soledad Canyon Road. The piece is a contemporary abstract sculpture of a girl and her dog created in stone by artist Madeline Wiener.
