One of the public art projects funded by the city’s first round of grants last year, a mashup sculpture called “Adopt-A-Stop” that fuses an old red bicycle frame with a stop sign, was installed in April and is now settling in along the Foss Creek Pathway. (Or “Serendipity Lane,” as the out-of-towners participating in the Edge Esmeralda event in town this month are calling it.) The sculpture was created by students from the Marce Becerra Academy at the high school, under the mentorship of Healdsburg artist Jendala and art teacher Linus Lancaster. Told you he’s involved in everything cool! From a recent city announcement: “The stop sign, located along the Foss Creek Pathway, is a wonderful addition to the art you see as you walk, run or bike the pathway. The stop sign was designed by Kevin Herrea and assisted by Diego Asuncion and Santiago Garcia. The welding and fabrication was done by Phynn Azlant while doing an internship at Black Iron Welding, and the installation was performed by Katie Beth and Pidge Farias Flecther. Please STOP by to see the great work of the City’s young artists.” (Source: City of Healdsburg)
