It is one part of a broader initiative to review Civic Art policies, procedures, commissions, and support for artists. Research consultant Special Service for Groups, Inc. (SSG) conducted the study on behalf of Arts and Culture and prepared the report.

Sunrise over the San Gabriels Coloring Book
Inspired by nature’s power to inspire and heal, artist Renée Fox’s mural Sunrise over the San Gabriels, created in 2021, invites visitors to the Olive View Restorative Care Village in Sylmar to contemplate the splendor of the local landscape and native flora and fauna. Throughout Fox’s coloring book are illustrations, which capture the native birds, plants, and butterflies of the San Gabriel foothills. The artist hopes that her mural and this coloring book will inspire curiosity and exploration of the natural world
