La Mesa's Legacy Project
Artists: Jesus Dominguez – Mary Lynn Dominguez – Amy Dominguez
history of La Mesa has been incorporated into this project. "The
Lookout" is designed to be a focal gathering spot in the downtown La
The eight mosaic panels on "The Lookout" recall a variety of historical events from different eras in La Mesa.
Each of the past 100 years from 1912-2012 is depicted as a date on the
inner and outer surfaces of the mosaic panels. The dates are designed to
be a part of the overall pattern created by the mosaic tiles and not
simply as numbers on a wall.
In addition to the dates, on each
of these panels a special event from La Mesa's history will be further
illustrated with imagery, also done in mosaic tiles. A stainless steel
plaque on one of the inner panels will list the eight memorable events
