See all three sculpture proposal options below:
The Art in Public Places Advisory Board has posted a new question on the County’s “Open Forum” webpage: Which Norris and Lois Bradbury sculpture should be recommended to the County Council for fabrication and installation at the new Los Alamos County Municipal Building?
The Board is seeking public comment on proposals received for this next set of historical sculptures. These sculptures of the Bradburys, the third and fourth in the series after Oppenheimer and Groves, represent the Cold War Era, and will be located in front of the new Los Alamos County Municipal Building.
The three proposals selected by the Board as semi-finalists are posted on Open Forum. One proposal will be recommended to the County Council for fabrication and installation after public comment has been received and considered.
The Historic Sculptures Master Plan, adopted in 2010, has identified five eras of Los Alamos history that will be represented by a total of 18 sculptures.
The Call for Artists to which these proposals responded required that the sculptures be life-sized, realistic and cast in bronze.
The Art in Public Places Advisory Board also has a strong commitment to develop a collection of unique and diverse works of art for the County.
The deadline for comments is 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 27. In addition to seeking input from County citizens via Open Forum, comments may be made by e-mailing the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
