Susan Stinsmuehlen-Amend
Untitled
1999


Project Area: Canoga Park
Project: Canoga Park Medallions
Project Location: Sherman Way between Jordan and Canoga Avenues
Project Type: CRA Initiated

Description:

Artist Susan Stinsmuehlen-Amend created large metal cut-out pole medallions for the historic area of Canoga Park. Images for the medallions reflect the types of business found in the area: antiques, sporting goods, jewelry, and carpets. The medallions not only help define the business district, but they entice passersby to shop and explore the district further.
