Artist Katy Krantz was selected to design a ceramic tile wall mural, located at the new Canyon Country Community Center. The art piece, titled “Circle Song,” was inspired by the local natural landscape and the history of quilting.
The project included socially distanced community engagement programs that took place at Central Park, Elsmere Canyon trailhead, Towsley Canyon, and Discovery Park.
Hikers were given blocks of wet clay to press into natural textures encountered on their self-guided hike. The clay impressions were collected and used within the tile mural’s design.
A second community engagement program that included an online tile-making workshop, in partnership with the Education Department of the Fernandeño Tataviam of Mission Indians.
