County Unveils New Display at State Capitol

(Santa Ana, CA)—To the pleased smiles and cheers of numerous State and City officials, Chair Chris Norby today unveiled the new Orange County display case at the State Capitol.  The display is one of fifty-eight county displays that will be seen by approximately 480,000 people who visit the Capitol each year.

“Our last display was installed fifteen and a half years ago and we are so proud of our stunning new display that more accurately shows the famous landmarks and vibrant images of Orange County,” said Chair Chris Norby.  “We also want to thank the Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney Imagineering, City of Anaheim, City of Santa Ana, Honda Center and The Irvine Company for making this display a reality.” 

The new display features seventeen colorful transparencies of some of the county’s most notable locations. The transparencies float in front of a curved panel listing the names of all thirty-four cities.  A green center divider has hand-painted oranges and orange blossoms as well as the County seal and a special website, www.ocgov.info, to count visitors.   Design services for the new display were provided by a generous in-kind donation from the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney Imagineering.

The images in the transparencies consist of:  Huntington Beach Pier; Laguna Beach Coastline; Mission San Juan Capistrano; Disneyland;  Crystal Cathedral; Bowers Museum; Discovery Science Center; Knott’s Berry Farm; Honda Center; Anaheim Ducks; Angel Stadium of Anaheim; Angels Baseball; University of California, Irvine; California State University, Fullerton; Chapman University; Anaheim Convention Center; Orange County Performing Arts Center; John Wayne Airport, The Irvine Company Business Complex and a map of the county.
