This week, the Construction Authority announced that it has received nearly 50 submissions following the start of a public Call for Nominations for inspirational Pomona residents to be permanently featured in the artwork of the future Pomona Gold Line Station. To date, a diverse range of nominations have been received for individuals from all walks of life and across ages, ethnicities, backgrounds, races, occupations and generations.
The station artist is planning to highlight about 60 Pomona heroes in a series of 24-inch tile panels incorporated onto the railings and other elements around the future station. The Construction Authority is seeking additional submissions to ensure the art plan can be fully realized. The deadline for nominations is March 31, 2021.
