CITY OF SANTA ANA
The City of Santa Ana seeks to commission a work of public art to be placed at the northwest corner of Flower Street and Sunflower Avenue as part of the "Flower Street Bike Trail Phase II" project. Since this
property was once owned and farmed by a Japanese-American farmer who greatly contributed to the growth and prosperity of this region, the artwork shall commemorate the important role of the Japanese-American immigrant agricultural community in Santa Ana.
