Casa Coastal: Rebecca Louise Law

Our Vision

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.
