Monterey Conference Center has installed new public art for all of us to enjoy in Jeffers Plaza, an outdoor space connecting the Conference Center with Portola Hotel and Spa. The plaza is named after Robinson Jeffers (1887-1962), an influential local poet and icon of the environmental movement. Much of Jeffers' poetry was written in narrative and epic form, and was widely popular in the 1920s and 30s.
The bronze sculptures of Jeffers were created by local artists Will Pettee and Carol Matranga Courtney. We encourage you to go in person and check it out the next time you're in Downtown Old Monterey. Monterey Conference Center is located at 1 Portola Plaza.
