"Snapshot" by Jane DeDecker and the National Sculptors' Guild was placed in Oxnard, California in 1995.
Snapshot was originally commissioned by Michael Jackson, The multi-figure bronze depicts a number of children ready for the camera, sitting on a bench with a wagon pulled up to one side; the kids are in a casual pose, enjoying a respite from summer play, holding toys and drinking a soda. It even includes the pouting kid in the back - not wanting to be pictured as often happens. The piece is universal even though it was inspired by photos Jackson gave DeDecker.
