Artist from La Jolla Festival of the Arts to install a ‘San Diego Staple’ in Solana Beach

Local featured artist of the La Jolla Festival of the Arts, Amos Robinson, will install another larger-than-life sculpture in San Diego. The kinetic stainless-steel artwork titled, “Love My Bike,” will become a fixture on Cedros Avenue in Solana Beach on Friday, March 30, at 10:30 a.m.

“Amos’ sculptures are peppered throughout San Diego,” said Ted Peña, La Jolla Festival of the Arts manager and Torrey Pines Kiwanis Club member. “I’m very happy to hear about his latest installment and I’m thrilled that he will be one of the artists to feature in this year’s La Jolla Festival of the Arts.”

Robinson’s kinetic sculptures have become a staple in the San Diego community.  His art can be found at Tidelands Park in Coronado, the Wolfstein Sculpture Parks at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla and Encinitas, and the Manpower corporate office in downtown San Diego.  Motion, reflective light and rich color are key elements of his stainless steel artwork.

“Public art represents a community’s spirit and offers a sense of pride, bringing people together,” said Sean MacLeod, Developer at South Cedros Associates, who is commissioning the ‘Love My Bike’ installation. “Public installation art is also a great tool for economic stimulation, because it attracts people to a community.”

Art is not only a creative way to establish a community’s identity, but it also offers an opportunity to give back to the community. Over two hundred award-winning local and national artists, who range from sculptures like, Amos Robinson, to photographers, painters, musicians and more, will feature in this year’s The La Jolla Festival of the Arts.  All proceeds raised from ticket sales will benefit over 20 local organizations, which work to improve the quality of life for San Diegans with disabilities.

“My artwork is an expression of my dreams. I’m proud to participate in the La Jolla Festival of the Arts and to support the event’s mission, which enables others to follow their dreams,” said Robinson.
