Description

Albuquerque’s newest public artwork will be dedicated on Friday, July 12th at 4:00 PM at the Four-H Park, in a ceremony that will include members of the Albuquerque Arts Board and other dignitaries, along with Albuquerque artist Ed Haddaway, who designed and fabricated the new artwork.

The project, developed by The City of Albuquerque’s Public Art Program, was funded through the 1% for the Arts ordinance. Located in the roundabout at Indian School and the Menaul Extension, behind the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, the work, entitled “Monument,” is a medley of parts that resemble an imaginary machine. The sculpture sits atop a large concrete pedestal, and features an antique mining equipment component, a large metal sphere fashioned from a recycled propane tank, and Haddaway’s signature metal branches and flowers emerging from the top.

“The sculpture is a throwback to traditional monuments but with a contemporary twist,” said Haddaway. “Monuments should help us remember. I’m more curious about what we forgot.”

The event is free and open to the public. Come celebrate Albuquerque's newest public artwork!
