Pride & Joy

My Name is Judy Arrigotti & children are the focus of my public art project.
It was an honor to be selected as one of the 100 artists who received a lion. I was chosen after submitting a resume’, artist statement and photographs of my gourd sculptures. Since I switched my focus from two dimensional, oil paintings, about eight years ago it has been my goal to gain respect as a fine artist, who uses gourds as my canvas.

What's This?
The "Lions on Parade" is a Public Art Project in which a “ pride” of life-size lions (male, female and cubs) embellished by one hundred of Sacramento Valley’s leading artists will be exhibited in front of businesses and in public spaces in Sacramento, Placer, Yolo and El Dorado Counties.

Children are our most valuable resource. They represent our fondest memories and give us hope. I believe that my message is clear and my lion, “Pride and Joy”, will make an emotional connection with the public.
