Scenes From Art In Public Places Ribbon Cutting For Wind Sculptures Installed At Mesa Public Library

Members of the Arts in Public Places Board, County Councilors and citizens took part in the ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday morning at Mesa Public Library. The ceremony officially recognized three new wind sculptures in front of the library. The pieces are called ‘Jelly Fish,’ ‘Split Infinity’ and ‘Ripple Sphere’. They were purchased at the Mark White Gallery in Santa Fe. ‘Ripple Sphere’ was donated by Charles Bowman in memory of his wife, Nona, who served on the Los Alamos County Council as well as the Arts in Public Places Board.
