365/Day 337

Santa Monica

At the intersection of Wilshire and Ocean boulevards in Palisades park, a statue of Santa Monica stands on a heart-shaped patch of grass. The 18-ft. high Art Deco Sculpture was sculpted in 1934 by Eugene Morahan as a Public Works of Art project and presented to the citizens of Santa Monica by the Federal Government. The statue faces Wilshire Blvd. as if welcoming visitors to the park.
