November 7, 2018 started out as any other day in Thousand Oaks, folks went about their day at work or school…no one could have imagined how horrific this day would end, that a mass shooting could happen in OUR town to OUR loved ones. Within days, artist Ali Alinejad began his grief inspired journey to memorialize each victim to help the families, friends and community to heal.
Ali, has sculpted a vibrant 8- to 12-foot ceramic totem for each victim, stacking the letters of their first names, inscribing each totem with special memories on the back. The colorful, joyful sculptures are currently at the Alinejad’s home & art studio in Thousand Oaks.
Today, ART through ACTION is focused on generating the funds and support to secure a life long display installation here in our community, This new memorial will allow all 12 totems to stand "together" and provide a spot for family and friends to relect and remember the lives lost.
