Sparkling new sculpture

John Oliver, a regular contributor to the Redlands Community News, found this new sculpture off Cajon Street in Prospect Park. The sculpture is made of bicycle rims, colored metal circles and automobile tire rims. “It sparkles in the morning sun,” he said. It is titled “Cosmic Glints Too” and was created by Patricia Vader, an artist from Martinez, California. After the City Council approved a two-year lease recommended by the Cultural Arts Commission, it was installed on July 8. The location was chosen because the area is along the Bike Classic route and it contains bike wheels.
