Art Professor and Alumnae Create Public Art in Sacramento
Art professor Hearne Pardee and art department alumnae Julia Couzens (M.F.A., ’90) have created public artworks recently unveiled and dedicated in Sacramento. “Everyday Light” by Pardee and “Coffee and Oranges in a Sunny Chair (After Wallace Stevens)” by Couzens are at McKinley Village as part of a sculptural art walk that will include 10 works. The sculptures are in Ricardo Favela Park which is named for the late professor of art at California State University Sacramento and a founder of the artists collective the Royal Chicano Air Force. Art professor Gina’s Werfel’s “Clearing” is also part of the sculpture project. McKinley Village is a newly developed neighborhood in East Sacramento.
