Description

Tree by Tree, from Sea to Mountains by artist Rebeca Méndez, is located at the Registrar Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) Elections Operation Center (EOC) in Santa Fe Springs. The imposing photographic banner celebrates the majestic nature of Los Angeles County’s diverse tree population. The banner stretches 132 feet and provides a 180-degree skyward pan from the Pacific Ocean to the San Gabriel Mountains. Tree by Tree provides a dramatic, yet calming, element to the work environment of the facility’s 100 employees. In developing her design, the artist considered the EOC’s key functions: registration of voters and maintenance of voter files, conduct of federal, state, local and special elections, marriage license issuance and the performance of civil marriage ceremonies, recording legal documents which determine ownership of real property, and maintenance of birth, death and marriage records for Los Angeles County.
