Celebrate 40th Anniversary

ANNIVERSARY SKETCHBOOKThe Arts Council chose part of a public artwork created by Long Beach artist Craig Cree Stone entitled Image Emergence: Promenade of Clouds for its 40th Anniversary commemorative image. Completed in November 2011 and located on the south block of The Promenade in Downtown Long Beach, the project was funded through the City’s Percent for Public Art dollars.
