SANTA BARBARA Three animal sculptures have found their new home at Elings Park, the latest development in the Squire Foundation’s countywide Public Sculpture Program.
The three sculptures, Golden Jaguar, Tiger, and Flying Eagle were created as part of a series of monumental animal sculptures by the late Morris B. Squire. Made to engage the community, the sculptures help Eilings Park celebrate artistic expression.
Through their Public Sculpture Program, Squire has placed nearly two dozen sculptures in the cities of Guadalupe and Santa Barbara. In addition to Santa Barbara County, the sculptures of Morris B. Squire have been placed in public spaces throughout California, the United States, and internationally.
“Squire is honored to be partnered with the Elings Park Foundation,” Squire executive director Ashley Hollister said in a news release. “Our Public Sculpture Program aims to address the need to marry public space with creative exploration and artistic expression. Our hope is that we have added a layer of art to Elings Park, which the community can discover, enjoy and be inspired by.”
