On August 10, 1989, the Santa Fe Springs City Council adopted Ordinance No. 755 (later amended to Ordinance No. 909) which created the Heritage Artwork in Public Places Program. The original goal of the program was to provide a collection of permanent outdoor artwork in the City that could be enjoyed for many generations. The program was designed to present the community with a wide range of sculpture styles, themes and media, all of the highest quality and monumental in scale. In keeping with the City’s rich history, art should be created around four historic periods: Native American, Spanish/Mexican, Turn-of-the-Century Ranching and Industrial Modern. Further information about the City’s history is available at Heritage Park.
