COMMUNITY News:

President/CEO Scott Hicks of Shidoni Foundry and Galleries in Tesuque has generously loaned the bronze sculpture “Wally with Bench” to Central Park Square for the community to enjoy.

Los Alamos Creative District Advisory Committee Member Philip Kunsberg owns Central Park Square and covered the cost of delivery and installation for the piece, which arrived this morning on Main Street near the large lawn area in Central Park Square.

Shidoni – a greeting to a friend in Navajo – is an art gallery five miles north of Santa Fe at 1508 Bishops Lodge Road. The gallery includes eight acres of sculpture gardens and a bronze art foundry situated along the Rio Tesuque on a former apple orchard.

Visitors have the opportunity to see the indoor art galleries, which represent more than 140 artist from all over the country, stroll the gallery and sculpture gardens and watch 2000 degree molten bronze being poured into ceramic shell molds during Saturday Pour Days.
