The three integrated art elements that make up the Neighborhood Roots installation celebrate the natural and agricultural history of Glendale and the local Yucca District. Regional iconography includes cotton, sugar beets, poppies, hummingbirds, quail, and dragonflies, among other symbols of the area. The three works weave these images, along with other whimsical and ornamental design elements, into an undulating latticework of line drawings that welcome visitors through the library’s entryway and atrium.
