Description

Building upon the Medical Center’s burgeoning art collection, Civic Art program staff initiated an art purchase program. A curatorial approach was crafted to include both existing and commissioned for purchase. Christine Nguyen, David Hicks and Joe Zaldivar were the three artists selected for the art purchase program.

Joe Zaldivar created two artworks that were commissioned for the Olive View – UCLA Medical Center in collaboration with Tierra del Sol Foundation. The artwork titled "Olive View - UCLA Medical Center" features the Medical Center through a perspective architectural drawing in Zaldivar’s personalized animation style. The second site specifi c artwork,"Aerial view of Sylmar, California", was created through the artist’s inventive use of electronic tablets and online map applications. Since 2011, Joe Zaldivar has been pursuing his professional art career with First Street Gallery Art Center, one of the progressive studios of the Tierra del Sol Foundation, an organization that enables individuals with disabilities to establish meaningful and productive lives and to contribute to the economic, cultural and civic vitality of their communities.
