The City of Casa Grande Community Recreation Center dedicated two new art sculptures in November — Children on the Logo and Children Climbing Ladder. The Casa Grande Arts & Humanities Commission dedicated the sculptures during a small ceremony at the Community Recreation Center. The sculptures were generously sponsored by Ellison-Mills Construction. The Arts & Humanities Commission and the CG Mosaic Creative Communities Team coordinated the purchase and installation of the sculptures. Ellison-Mills Constructing LLC donated $10,000 to the arts commission and CG Mosaic Creative Communities Team for the support and development of art projects (visual and preforming) throughout the community. Their donation was used to purchase the Children on the Logo Sculpture from the DePadre Family, and they donated the Children Climbing the Ladder Sculpture. The City’s Community Services Department was in charge of installing the sculptures; Daniel Gallegos, Community Services Department, and Mike Edwards, Parks Superintendent and his staff. The Arts & Humanities Commission serves as an entity, stimulating and supporting excellence and accessibility in the arts and humanities for all citizens in the community of Casa Grande. Art is an important part of the community, bringing people together, enhancing civic spaces and creating connection and conversation with others.
