One of the best examples of a public library that tells its story through cast bronze statuary and plaques is the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi, California. It joins other major venues, like Balboa Park in San Diego, California. Public memorials, like the Japanese Internment Camp Memorial in Merced, California, are examples of honoring those Americans, caught in war, who eventually became icons of patriotism in the history of our country. Honoring individuals, from The Beach Boys (cast stone on a brick monument), to the Harvey Milk memorial plaque at the Castro Muni Station in San Francisco; these examples show how you can remember and honor by simply placing a plaque on a column, a building or a masonry monument.
Remember that your projects can be built on various materials and processes. Each type of material offers different features, such as exterior longevity, or the ability to hold high-detailed images. Longevity is usually the tradeoff. But there are materials, like our Full-Color Porcelain Tiles, that can both hold highly accurate reproductions of your images, while being color-fast even with placed in direct sunlight. Let Sterling Cast Bronze assist you in choosing the optimal materials and processes for your project.
