Squire Foundation animal sculptures come to Preisker Park


The city of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department is hosting a temporary exhibition of animal sculptures this summer at Preisker Park. 


The exhibition was brought to the park on June 27 and consists of four sculptures. The animal sculptures were created by late Santa Barbara County artist Morris Squire and are on loan from the Squire Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to civic and educational programs for artists, curators, and all manner of creative people. The four sculptures, Reclining Tiger, Golden Jaguar, Flying Eagle, and an interactive ram, are part of the Squire Foundation's mission to bring more public art to the North County.

Residents will have the opportunity to decorate the interactive ram (pictured) during the reception and community painting on July 7 from 9 to 11 a.m. This program is made possible through a partnership with the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission and the Squire Foundation.

Preisker Park is located at 330 Hidden Pines Way, Santa Maria. For more information, contact the Recreation and Parks Department at (805) 925-0951, Ext. 2260.
