Oil Exploration

Marlo Bartels, 2017

The pillars depict the flowers of Brea. The stairs show photographs of Brea from the Historical Society. It includes photographs that are mounted on tile of early images from the Historical Society to give a feeling of what Brea looked like 100 years ago. Brea celebrates their centennial year in 2017.

It also includes four columns that are reminiscent of the marker that was placed to remember the exploration of Portola when he came through this area. The obelisks are reminiscent of the column that was set in his honor.  They are part of a 3/4 mile park and a part of Blackstone Homes. (Blackstone 5) Sponsored by Blackstone Homes, Inc.
