Casa Coastal: Rebecca Louise Law
Our vision is to use Rebecca Louise Law’s artistic voice to create an original installation that will also educate the community about California native and drought-tolerant plants.
With this project, we accomplish three goals that align with our mission:
- To commission original works that are unique to our organization
- To educate the community through arts and horticulture programming
- To lead our community in choosing California native and drought-tolerant landscaping
This will be the first time such a major installation piece will be commissioned in south Orange County.
