City unveils new public art on Friday

The city of Burbank Art in Public Places program unveiled a new art piece on Friday in front of a new condominium complex.

Adorning the entrance to Valencia Empire Homes, a 38-unit facility on Valencia Avenue, is a glass sculpture of a man, woman and child standing together in solidarity.

The piece was crafted by Jilla Parhami as a part of Burbank's public art program, which requires developers to either include public art in their projects or contribute to an account that funds public art projects.

Valencia Homes is a three-story luxury facility offering two- and threebedroom units.
