“Alegria” (Seven Dancing Figures)

Commissioned public sculpture at the San Fernando Metrolink Station
Sylmar, California
1993 – present

“Alegria” consists of seven dancing figures made of plate painted steel. We took flat steel, and with the help of foundry workers, formed the steel into a curved shape, outlined the design in chalk then pinged indentations to form an outline before the steel cutting machine was used. The area of the sculpture location is known for its neighborhood gangs; however, the sculpture is still in place today and has never been tagged with graffiti. Press here to see images.
