Stella Hopes to Spark Engagement

Be sure to visit the Community Center, where a very special piece of art created by members of the Laguna Woods Art Association is currently on display.

“Water Is Life - Let’s Protect It” is a mixed-media artwork inspired by an original Wyland drawing and is the association’s contribution to Streams of Hope, a community public arts project in support of our oceans and waterways. 

The Streams of Hope campaign seeks to increase public awareness and education about the preservation and health of local watersheds through art through 40 illustrated, 8-foot-long baby whale statuettes, all fondly referred to as “Stella,” on display throughout Orange County. 

The program is a community partnership in association with the Wyland Foundation, the OC Conservation Corps, OC Adopt a Channel and the Municipal Water District of Orange County, with special thanks to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, USA Surfing, CalTrans, Disneyland Resorts, the Toro Company and KCBS2/KCAL9.

Laguna Woods Art Association members who created “Water Is Life - Let’s Protect It” are Sherri Bashore, Kris De Young, Marlene Johnson, Yong Kapoor, Sue S. Mills and Mary Sinclair.
