The Ram

686 Anton Blvd., Costa Mesa, CA 92626

The Ram by Charles O. Perry is an excellent starting point from which to begin Costa Mesa’s “Art Walk.” This bright yellow painted steel sculpture was the second sculpture installed in Town Center Park, across from the Westin South Coast Plaza, and remains a colorful focal point there. 

Commissioned by Henry T. Segerstrom in 1979, the sculpture in its title and form suggests that Perry was inspired by animal horns, but he took the idea into the realm of abstraction.  Perry’s work is characterized by an elegance of form that masks the mathematical and scientific complexity of its genesis. The Ram was fabricated in Rome and shipped to Costa Mesa in four pieces, where it was assembled onsite in one day.
