These art panels found at Palms Station combine images of pencil drawings on wood panels and hand-cut Japanese washi paper collage to illustrate the people, places, nurseries and plant life of the area. Created by Shizu Saldamando, this work celebrates the Japanese-American community in Palms, and the wood panels are a subtle tribute to Saldamando's grandfather, who made wood sculptures while living in a Japanese internment camp during the Second World War.
