Location: North West corner of S. Main St. and W. Borchard Ave. intersection
Cynthia Ortega’s The Golden City celebrates Santa Ana’s Sesquicentennial anniversary. Her design draws on the colors and style of the Santa Ana flag to increase the city’s recognition among locals and tourists. Its clean lines, bold style, and bright colors reflect the energy of Santa Ana, which is as alive at night as it is during the day. The glow pigments last up to twelve hours per change, keeping pace with the city’s busy nightlife.
