April 3, 2021: "Happy Easter," - the photo says so - from "Venti," a Conejo Valley Cottontail located in front of the Best Western Plus Thousand Oaks Inn. The five-foot six-inch sculpture by artist John Galan reflects on the history of the Conejo Valley.
Conejo Cottontails is a Thousand Oaks Civic public art project. About 20 five-foot six-inch fiberglass sculptures by Cate Hartenstein are located around the community. Each Cottontail is individually painted by local artists and sponsored by local businesses, organizations and individuals.
My thoughts on images past and present.
