Renowned Artists Highlight City’s Natural Beauty through Gold Line Station Art – San Dimas Community Post
By Joey Patton
It does not take long to recognize the natural beauty of San Dimas. Nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, the city’s terrain is dressed in a diverse blend of winding trails, wildlife and a waterfall that flows through a rippling creek and at last into the Pacific Ocean.
This scenic landscape will be celebrated in a unique fashion, as it will serve as the theme of the city’s soon-to-be Gold Line station, scheduled to make its way to town by 2025.
In a decade-long collaboration with the Foothill Gold Line, the city of San Dimas has teamed up with a pair of talented artists to make the new station not just a stop along the journey but also an attractive destination.
Eugene Daub and Anne Olsen Daub are San Pedro-based artists with several accolades between them. Daub is a renowned sculptor who has been awarded the highest honor for medallic art: the Saltus Award from the American Numismatic Association. Olsen Daub has designed for Mattel, Inc., one of the largest toy manufacturers in the entire world, and has worked on numerous private commissions.
Though married, the two often work on their art independently. For the Gold Line project, however, they are working in tandem to help visitors experience the beauty of San Dimas.
