This petition supports the Alley Art Time Machine Sculpture to remain in downtown Vista following the 90 day probation period.

Alley Art Festival 2017 brought another sculpture to Downtown Vista from Randall Art Ranch through the Vista Art Association Foundation. The Alley Art Time Machine Sculpture is installed in front of Straightedge Barber Co. and Edward Jones on the corner of Indiana and Broadway.

A Public Art Application was submitted by Randall Art Ranch in the beginning of June, individuals and the public were encouraged to view and comment on the proposed steel sculpture to be installed on the corner of E. Broadway and S. Indiana Avenue, Vista, during the public viewing period which occurred from June 10, 2017 to July 9, 2017. No comment was made during this period.
