Angels to be Unveiled at Grand Park

evitedesignGayle Garner Roski’s newest angel statue – one of 30 angels created in celebration of the California Community Foundation’s Centennial – will be unveiled on Saturday, November 12, at Grand Park in Downtown Los Angeles.

Dates of Exhibition: November 12 to 19, 2016
