AAA Editor Notes

“Hat In Three Stages of Landing” is on the lawn at the Salinas Community Center. Claes Oldenberg's giant sculpture depicts three hats at different levels, each painted a vivid yellow and weighing approximately 3,500 pounds. The sculpture is a tribute to farmers and ranchers and represents a Western hat tossed in the air from the nearby rodeo stands.
