Mixed media artist  Jan a Charl's site-specific installation in the historic Richfield Oil Company gas station is the seventh exhibit in the Adams Square Mini-Park supported by the City of Glendale. Charl’s creative practice involves use of a variety of media and techniques to challenge the boundaries between craft, commercial art, and fine art. The history of the found objects she uses in her work add layers of meaning and humor to her work.

The City of Glendale’s Community Services & Parks and Library, Arts & Culture Departments along with the Arts and Culture Commission encourage the expansion of arts and cultural activities to benefit the citizens of our community and to provide local artists with new opportunities to participate in Glendale’s cultural life.

The Adams Square Mini Park project was completed by the City of Glendale in an effort to create a green space in the center of the business district for the densely populated Adams Hill neighborhood and to incorporate the historic 1936 Streamline Moderne Gas Station.  The gas station is listed on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources.

The Gas Station is located at the Adams Square Mini Park, 1020 East Palmer Avenue, Glendale CA 91205. The Gas Station is 12’x12’x12' cube, with acrylic windows. There are two doors, two electrical outlets and a timer. Items can be hung from the ceiling.
