City to Unveil Drought Tolerant Garden and Public Art at Central Library

GLENDALE, CA - The City of Glendale will unveil a drought tolerant garden and public art at an event on Tuesday, August 27, at 10 a.m., at the Central Library, 222 E. Harvard St. Glendale Water & Power constructed a water-saving demonstration garden near the entrance to the Central Library to demonstrate the potential for water-saving landscaping including water-wise plants and low water-using irrigation. Visitors to the Garden can also enjoy artist Scott Froschauer’s whimsical sign, “GROW,” and artist J. Gurantz’ painted utility box artwork titled “Hello Glendale.” Both art pieces are public art projects supported by the City of Glendale and the Glendale Arts and Culture Commission, with funding from the Urban Art Program. Artist Shenping Wang’s painting, “Languish For Wisdom,” will also be unveiled inside the Central Library.
