Celebrated artist Marlo Bartels unveiled his latest work Sakura Obelisk at the new Stone Valley     Townhomes community in Brea.  The 12-foot, handmade-ceramic mosaic obelisk sculpture is the 153 piece in Brea’s Arts in Public Places collection. “The obelisk is festooned with Cherry Blossoms, which in Japan symbolize spring,” described Bartels.  “Sakura is the promise of spring, of renewal.  It reminds us of the brevity of life; the fact that beauty is fleeting, and that life should be celebrated every day,” explained the artist. The Art in Public Places program makes Brea an unusually artistic community of its size.
