If they ever finish San Jacinto Plaza we will witness another failure. According to the city’s web site:
Renovations include; a 50-square-foot shade structure to protect Luis Jimenez’ Los Lagartos sculpture…
Take a look at the shade the canopy was providing at 1:30 in the afternoon of January 3, 2016:
Its probably fair to assume that the sculpture will be placed in the circle directly under the canopy. The mid-day sun evidently does not know how to read engineering drawings.
We’ve paid $638,000 to the designers and are about to end up with a canopy that will not protect the sculpture from the afternoon sun.
We deserve better
