Daily Postcard: Oppie And Groves Get Base Lift

on June 14, 2018 - 7:13am

Daily Postcard: The Art in Public Places Board is funding repairs and improvements to the appearance of the concrete and stone base of the Oppenheimer and Groves bronze historical sculptures near Fuller Lodge. These sculptures have become immensely popular with tourists often seen taking selfies with the duo. Over time, the concrete base of the statues has become stained and cracked so workers are pressure washing it, reinforcing it with mesh and re-finishing the concrete. The Los Alamos County Council approved this project at its May 22 meeting. Courtesy photo

“The idea spread quickly,” said Pride organizer Anna Dillane who owns Boomerang Thrift Boutique.
