an expanded re-sanctuary garden at tlc

We've added to the sanctuary garden-

a fishnado and undersea mural

Our Day Program participants used their senses and their sense of wonder

to create beauty that can be seen and felt. Everyone chipped in some talent.

Sanctuary Garden at the Day Program

With thanks to Artist-in-Residence, Elizabeth Criss and funding from Los Angeles County Arts Commission for a Community Impact Arts Grant, we've got something to show you. Also with thanks to our community of recyclers and volunteers who provided re-used plastics and cartons and containers and the know-how to cut and paint.

Our garden has a new look: a wondrous experience of flying fish, an undersea mural and many surprises. We continue to admire our clients' abilities to express themselves through artistic creativity. It is a sanctuary for the senses!

how we did it

by David and Elizabeth Criss, Artist-in-Residence


"The process of making Fishnado included help from clients of Therapeutic Living Centers for the Blind. After painting 181 'fish', they were mounted in a spiral around a 14 foot high metal pole", states David Criss, chief volunteer engineer of the project, for whom TLC is very grateful!
