    Orinda’s Art in Public Places Committee, also known as ArtSpace Orinda, arranged for the installation of five new sculptures, with four on display in Library Plaza and one in front of City Hall. Contributing artists Alan Chin and Hans Miles were on site Nov. 21, along with ArtSpace Orinda members Ted Urban and Rich Thompson and local artists John Toki and Martin Rickert who assisted with the installation process.
    All five sculptures are made from vitrified clay pipe and were created at a facility in the Mission Clay Arts and Industry program in Phoenix, AZ. The pieces are on loan from the artists for two years. To learn more about outdoor art on exhibit in Orinda, go to
