It takes a village of seats to make a sign in Pomona

I didn't know that the Pomona Packing Plant sign was made by Juan Thorpe of Bunny Gunner from rescued theater seats from the Pomona Fox. It was already my favorite sign in Pomona these days, but now I like it even better.

For those that don't know, the historic packing plant was developed by Jeved Management (the Tessiers) and turned into live/work space for artists. It opened this past Fall.

What is most interesting to me is the pioneering location of the Pomona Packing Plant. If it was on this map, which it isn't, it would be well outside the top right corner, some distance from the art gallery core of Pomona. Expect to see more galleries pop up NORTH of the railroad tracks and EAST of Towne Avenue.

Don't get me wrong, the Pomona Packing Plant is worth driving to. To prove it is this map showing the Art Walk Trolley has a stop there.

The trolley has a village of very nice wood slat seats, which should not be used to make a sign any time soon.
