Be a part of history - get involved in the restoration of the Hat in Three Stages of Landing, a monumental Pop Art sculpture by the world famous artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.
Installed in 1982, the giant yellow Hat was begining to show age and in need of refurbishing. Our group is raising funds to remove, restore, and relaunch the Hat in Three Stages of Landing on the 30th anniversary of the sculpture. A legacy to preserve this treasure for future generations.
You can help by spreading the word, sending a postcard to a friend, sporting a 'Hat' bumper sticker, or a commemorative 'Hat' - available at the Salinas 411 Downtown Visitor Center. Donations in any amount can be made to the Relaunch the Hats fund at the City of Salinas. See the 'Hat' here: SightSeeing With Google Maps
