In 2010, AltaMed, a medical organization in Los Angeles, California commissioned Carmen Lomas Garza to create the designs for OFRENDAS (offerings), a sculptural fence for the roof top terrace of their new headquarters. The metal cutout fence is 72 feet long, 6 feet high, in 14 sections made of 3/16th of an inch thick steel that was laser cut and powder coated black. Behind each section is a sheet of frosted glass installed 3 inches back from the cutout. The frosted glass is backlit at night.
