OKULICK SCUPTURE IN DANGER

PRESERVING OUR VALLEY HERITAGE       2013

When the State of California office building was built in Van Nuys, the state contracted with John Okulick for a three dimensional sculpture for one of its entrance ways.  Okulick's work entitled "Multio Colored Geometric Shapes is today in significant disrepair. Too bad! 
Ugly gouges, easily viewed here, faded colors and even peeling mar this work. This sculpture is the first of San Fernando Valley works of art to be listed as "endangered" by your Museum. Perhaps, when art is commissioned by the state of California, or other tax-supported entities, maintenance and repairs should be considered.
