    BernCo Dedicates Public Art

    07/24/2019

    Bernalillo County’s newest public art will be dedicated at a ceremony on Thursday, July 25 at 10 a.m. at the Vista Grande Community Center in the East Mountains.

    The two-part sculpture is titled, “Living Landscape” and is the brainchild and creation of artist Karen Yank.

    Yank is one of the leading public artists in the Western United States and drew the inspiration for ‘Living Landscape’ from the high desert near her East Mountain home.

    This is another magnificent work of art that has been accepted into the public arts collection of the county,” says Bernalillo County Commissioner Charlene Pyskoty. “We’re very fortunate to have this two-part sculpture as part of the East Mountain landscape.”

    The central design of the sculptures is the sunflower and prickly pear cactus flower shown as negative space in the large sculpture and then as a positive shape in the small piece.

    The “Living Landscape” sculptures are possible through the county’s 1% for the Arts program. This initiative takes 1% of all general obligation bonds and makes those funds available for the purchase of public art.

    The county currently owns more than 400 pieces of art, which are located throughout county facilities.
