1867 - Harald Sandberg born in Norway; built Sandberg's Summit Hotel on the Ridge Route [story]


southfork123112aThe City of Santa Clarita recently installed its third piece of art along the South Fork Trail as part of the Common Spaces: Art in Public Places campaign.  The piece, titled “The Finish,” pays tribute to the men, women and children who use the trail system to stay active and healthy.

Artist Scott Bruckner donated the wood art piece to the City and describes his creation as representing a runner’s excitement as he or she passes the finish line in a race.  The piece was constructed from Douglas fir with steel support brackets and steel cables.  It is approximately 14 feet high from the base with a wingspan of seven feet.  Several coats of weatherproof deck sealer were applied to help maintain the finish and protect it from the drying and fading effects from the sun.  “The Finish” is the third art installation along the South Fork Trail, which also includes “The Spirit of Santa Clarita” by artist Dianne Foderaro and STROLL, an audio-art collaboration with CalArts.

southfork123112b“The South Fork Trail runs through the heart of our community and is a great place to showcase unique works of art for the residents who use the trails,” said Mayor Frank Ferry.  “’The Finish’ not only represents Santa Clarita’s commitment to healthy living, but the joy associated with setting a goal and accomplishing it.”

Artist Scott Bruckner began his wood sculpting in 1995, working with found objects and unused construction materials.  His work has garnered numerous awards over the years in local art shows, with his last award in the 2012 Santa Clarita Art Classic.  He has been an active part of the Santa Clarita arts community and was president of the Santa Clarita Artists’ Association from 2005 to 2006.

“The Finish” is part of the City of Santa Clarita City Council and Arts Commission’s efforts to provide a variety of enriching experiences in the community through public art in public spaces.  For more information about the City’s arts endeavors, please visit Common-Spaces.org.

Trump taking on the mainstream media's favoritism of the left is to be hailed. Unfortunately, Trump’s ego spirals him into orbit with no filter. One would think with his power and the circles he runs in, he’d be a bit more sophisticated. Shame on me for setting a bar for Trump. I learned long, long ago that money doesn’t translate into class.
