Commissioned by the City of Burbank California, "The Answer is Yes" boldly enlivens the entrance to a popular park and aquatic center. Celebrating diversity as a creative force, a playful mural showcases Burbank's Sister Cities youth program. In the mural's upper left corner, a directional sign post shows Burbank's sister city names, while a young girl speaks the word "Yes" in each sister-city's national language. Interactive sound sculptures include a custom-designed spinning percussive wheel and seven contrabass chimes, decorated with incredibly durable powder-coated graphics that will last decades in full sun. Special thanks to 11:11 Projects, and Paula Ohan of Burbank's City administration, for helping bring the project to fruition. I absolutely could not have done it without them!
