Benny Bufano #4 -- January 20, 2011

Hillsdale Mall developer David Bohannon commissioned sculptor Benny Bufano to provide sculptures to decorate the new mall in San Mateo. Bufano opened a studio on the mall site in 1955 and created ten of his famous animal sculptures. I took this fuzzy photo of "Black Cat" on 13-December-2010. Note the mouse perching on the cat's back.

It was relatively warm today. At lunchtime I walked over to California Street today to look at the work. They were pouring concrete in the trench between the inbound and outbound rails.
