Existing Public Art in SJC
Below is a sampling of some of the large sculptures, murals, and fountains already commissioned in San Juan Capistrano. But to see all of it click on "Existing Public Art in SJC".
The Alliance for San Juan Art advocates an initiative to commission and place more Art in the Public Square in San Juan Capistrano that is accessible by the public and very visible. Temporary art should also be a component of Art in the Public Square. Such an initiative requires broad support and passionate advocates to make it a reality.
While large artworks are not unknown in San Juan Capistrano, they are mostly commissioned in the courtyards of business plazas and are hence not visible except to lessees and patrons of the plazas. “Binding Contact” aka the “Riders on the Hill” is an exception. It stands in blazing glory on a Del Obispo hillside, visible to all who pass by.
Ortega Cottages on Calle Arroyo "Untitled"
This is a beautiful life-size rendering in different shades of concrete. It is visible to patrons of the business center. The elements have not been kind to some parts of the sculpture and it is in need of repair. Attempts to learn more about this sculpture and the artist have not been successful
