BernCo to Dedicate Working Classroom Sculpture at Dolores Huerta Gateway Park

11/08/2018

Bernalillo County will dedicate “Vecinos” a new public art sculpture on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. at Dolores Huerta Gateway Park, 100 Isleta SW.

Lead artist Mark Horst and students from Working Classroom interviewed over 100 people about what they love about the South Valley.

The participants were photographed and their interviews were recorded.

This sculpture features the faces of ten South Valley residents who will now become a part of the South Valley’s history. The profiles of the ten participants featured in the sculpture will be repainted in a different color scheme up to twice a year.

In addition to the permanent sculpture, there will be a temporary wheat paste mural/photo grid of photos of all 104 participants.
