Signals art installation in Westlake Park

“Signals” refers to the simple hand gestures that become symbolic of deeper concepts. Peace. Hope. Love. Power. This project explored the depth and beauty of Mexican and Mexican-American culture. The imagery drew a long cultural history of accomplishments in art, science and philosophy. As we move forward, we have a strong foundation to stand on, a deep well of strength to draw from and the legacy of our culture to keep us focused on creating an environment of positivity and opportunity for the next generation.
