|"Dominguez Field and the Famous Titans of Aviation"|
Fausto Fernandez's mixed media work "Dominguez Field and the Famous Titans of Aviation" is a tribute to the local Dominguez family (dating to 1784) and the area's aviation history, notably the 1910 Los Angeles International Air Meet at Dominguez Field.
The public art creation process involved contributions from local youth, and Fernandez' resulting mixed media artwork of powder-coated aluminum, corrugated metal and reclaimed wood initially appears as a building-mounted sculpture. His use of acrylic paint on the stucco exterior, however, brings the three-dimensional quality of the piece to life as it merges both sculptural and mural forms.
"Dominguez Field and the Famous Titans of Aviation" was sponsored by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission; community center and park amenities were developed by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.
