    Animals of the Arroyo Seco Exhibit, March 30th, April 6th & 7th, 12pm-3pm

    Join us on the Arroyo Seco Trail (map) for this special exhibit featuring fun and unique wildlife sculptures placed along the Arroyo Seco trail to Cottonwood Canyon!  Learn how this section of the Hahamongna to Tujunga Wildlife Corridor inspired artist, Margaret Adachi, to create these beautiful works of art.

    Our relationship with wilderness is often informed by a remote inconvenience or an icky sensation, such as the scent of a skunk, a garbage bin scavenged by raccoons, or news coverage of a bear cooling off in a swimming pool. As the synthetic world expands in our drive for wealth and comfort, the natural world has diminished in our experience and been hidden from our range of view.

    Margaret feels it is important to make space in our lives for the wild, to regain some of the nature lost and reveal some of the life sequestered in a dwindling habitat. She wants these sculptures to remind us of the animals rarely seen but always nearby. They are watching as we enter, occupy and transform their dwellings.

    Margaret Adachi received an MFA in Visual Art from Claremont Graduate University in California and a BA in Sociology from Pitzer College. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and reviewed in Sculpture Magazine, ArtWeek, and other media. In addition, Margaret is a teaching artist at Side Street Projects in Pasadena. She is also a retired assistant film editor.
