Jardin de las Granadas
The Jardin de las Granadas is located at 21 E Anapamu St, Santa Barbara, CA.
In the initial planning of the Jardin de las Granadas project, the Santa Barbara City Redevelopment Agency met with a group that included local merchants, gallery owners, and representatives from the Downtown Organization, the Granada Center for the Performing Arts, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, and staff from the Granada Garage, Arts Commission, and City Arts Advisory to get input on the design.
The group recommended among other things, an open green space enhanced by the inclusion of areas (foundations) for the temporary display of 3-4 public sculptures to further enhance the Cultural Arts District.
The Jardin de las Granadas is now complete. The open space includes 4 sculpture pads designed much like the sculpture pads along State Street for State of the Art Gallery. They are designed to provide anchoring points for the temporary display of sculpture. Additional lighting and electrical outlets were also included in support of sculpture exhibitions.
