“Non-Fiction Book Bench”
at the Cerritos Civic Center
Updated December 23, 2009
“Non-Fiction Book Bench” is located in the Cerritos Civic Center in the area west of the Cerritos Library. The bench is adjacent to the “Amaryllis” fountain.
The art piece, created by artists James Vilona and Kevin Box, represents a large open book with the cover and crumpled pages bent to form a bench which can adequately seat two adults. It is made of bronze with white patina pages accented with gold along the edges. The cover of the book is created in the likeness of a rich brown antiqued textured leather. The bench is 3 feet, 2 1/2 inches high, 4 feet wide and 2 feet deep.
“Non-Fiction Book Bench” was generously donated to the Cerritos Library and the residents of Cerritos by long time Cerritos residents Marilyn and Dennis McGorman.
