Brad Howe One Desert Sky
Permanent Art Project
Drawing upon the stories of local Antelope Valley residents, artist and Antelope Valley native Brad Howe created the installation that now hangs in the atrium of the High Desert Regional Health Center, located on Avenue I and. Taking mental pictures from these stories, Howe turned them into actual images – 8,000 laser-cut aluminum plates painted blue. Spearheaded by the Lancaster Museum of Art and History, a naming contest took place with the winning name being “One Desert Sky” – an imagine invoked by the blue images and the stories behind them.
