Public Art: Stratigraphy (Bascom Library & Community Center)*Categories:
- Public Art
Artist: Ron Baron (2010)
Located on the face of the elevator bay and wrapping around onto the second floor landing, Stratigraphy is a major focal element at the Bascom Library and Community Center. It is a vertical timeline of the areas culture and history, telling the story through a vast array of representative objects; as if a cutaway at an archaeological site that reveals a social history through actual objects such as balls and athletic items for the community center and books that could be found in the library. Baskets and acorns pay homage to the original Ohlone inhabitants; the region’s agricultural and canning era are conveyed through fruit, cans and canning jars, which then transitions into the electronics and technology era. At the top is a tree with figures from trophies dangling from its branches.
