Adams Square Mini Park Gas Station Hosts Art Installation

Enjoy artist Valerie Daval’s art installation, “Spindles 100: Hers,” at the Adams Square Mini Park Gas Station located at 1020 E. Palmer Ave. through Oct. 3. “Spindles 100: Hers” is an installation involving 100 suspended textile sculptures.
The tree-pod sculptures symbolize life and time as well as exclusively feminine work made by hand. The handprints are universal and individual and demonstrate memories of touch and our collective unconscious. The installation is essentially about nature, women, community of women, empathy, life, blood, work, courage, pain and compassion. This temporary art installation is sponsored by the Glendale Arts and Culture Commission through funding from the Urban Art Program, and support from Glendale Library, Arts & Culture, Glendale Community Services and Parks, and the Adams Hill Neighborhood Association.
The mission of the Glendale Arts and Culture Commission is to enrich the human experience, reinforce Glendale’s identity and civic pride through arts and culture, and to recognize the importance of arts to the quality of life and to the local economy. This is accomplished by consciously integrating arts and culture into the daily life of the people of Glendale through urban design, planning, economic development and education.
