Inland Valley Photo Quiz No. 8

Can you believe we haven’t done one of these guess-the-location photos since April 2012? (In that one I was marveling that we hadn’t done one since August 2011. I’ve gotta step it up.)

Reader Bob Terry contributes the above photo, and thankfully he told me where it is because I wouldn’t have known. Can you identify the location of this piece of public art? Submit your guess in the comment field below. The correct answer will appear here tomorrow.

* Why wait? Linda Bissonnette and Ramona both have it right, as do Xavier Torres and Kimberly Serdinsky LaHue on FB. Their comments, aside from the location, include “ugly” and “very gaudy.” Tough crowd.

  • This is Rancho Cucamonga by the Carl’s Junior and Arco Station and Home Depot….kinda ugly…LOL. I believe the turn is at Masi.

  • Ramona

    Yup. More that once I have wondered what the heck the significance is.

    Foothill & Masi in Rancho Cucamonga. Hideous.

    Sorry to disagree, but I don’t think it’s the least bit hideous. I see a very stylized tree with birds nesting in it. It’s very whimsical, and much more interesting than those fake palm tree cell towers.

    This is the entrance art where the new Rancho Cucamonga Super Walmart is going to be built. This questionable new addition to the city will complete the Terra Vista Power Center from Target in the west to Walmart / Home Depot in the east. From Haven Avenue to Rochester Avenue…7 suburban blocks long…wow! Power centers are the perfect example of poor suburban planning but at least it’s a nice one. I personally think that this is one of the nicest power centers ever built in So Cal due to the lush landscaping, seating and lighting, public art, pathways, and superb big-box architecture. The newer centers have been stripped of their landscaping, art, fountains, pathways, and architecture leaving them looking more like vast parking lots instead of town centers.

      I used to really like the Best Buy/Barnes & Noble center due to the landscaping, seating and the like. (Without Best Buy, there’s less to like.) I agree, RC has done a good job of making Foothill attractive in that stretch despite basically consisting of a row of chain stores and restaurants.
