Secret (art) garden: Costa Mesa, CA
Music, theater, and dance make this Orange County town an art hot spot. What also puts it on the art map is California Scenario,
the super-cool modern sculpture garden hidden between two office buildings. Created by famed artist Isamu Noguchi, the garden
has areas devoted to the state’s varying geography: There’s a mini redwood forest, a tiny desert, and a little mountain stream.
Though it was installed more than 30 years ago, few outsiders know about it, so it’s usually quiet.
