Casa Heiwa

“Harmony”, a mixed media sculptural piece by Artist Nancy Uyemura was originally produced in 1996 for the Little Tokyo Service Center Affordable Family Housing project known as Casa Heiwa. Continual sunlight on coated aluminum panels caused images depicting Little Tokyo community members to fade. The restoration effort re-fabricated the artworks using porcelain enamel steel. Colors from the seasons of Los Angeles fan over a slate background forming the entrance to the building, while depicting a personal journey of the spirit and family relationships in balance.
