Concept Proposal

The criteria request for this project is for a photogenic image, one that engenders civic pride that will be the first monument for Rancho Cucamonga, CA. In our contemporary world of selfies and instant feedback, an iconic image is not only a place-maker, but takes on a new role: social connection. There is a desire for the artwork to be captivating and a catalyst for conversation. Because Rancho Cucamonga recognizes its special Route 66 heritage, and supports the preservation of its remaining vintage road structures, this proposal looks at the roadside attraction as a reference.
