The Unveiling of "Rosie" at Westlake City Hall

On September 4, 2019, Rosie was officially welcomed to her forever home at Westlake City Hall. The funding for Rosie came from the City's commitment to public art. The proceeds from the sale of Rosie are being used to bring an arts program to the seniors of Westlake Village. Rosie was created by artist Judy Koenig.

The Dedication Celebration was preceded by a Shibori Banner making activity facilitated by Art Trek. The colorful banners were a fitting embellishment to the festive atmosphere. At the unveiling, Mayor Ned Davis quipped about famous rabbits in history including Peter Cottontail, Bugs Bunny, and the Trix Rabbit to name a few. Mayor Pro Tem, Kelly Honig spoke about the importance of public art and expressed her delight in seeing Rosie each time she entered the City Hall Building.
