MOA Galleria - Hillsdale Shopping Center

San Mateo, California - March 18, 1962

The striking "Red Cat" sculpture at Hillsdale Shopping Center, created by California-based Italian American sculptor, Benny Bufano. Some of his other works at Hillsdale can be seen in the Shopping Can Be Fun video I shared a while back.

I also noticed that there are some circus cages in the background, so I'm assuming the shopping center was hosting some wild animals at the time. Besides the shoppers.

Awww. The red kitty is still in the mall. It's one of the few sculptures that isn't black. Mall art is so underused anymore. To me, it gives the mall some character.

This is outstanding! I grew up one block behind this mall. I love the photos. Will be checking back for more.
