It’s not everyday that a city turns 400 years old and it’s not everyday that a neighboring county spends $25,000 as a way to say happy birthday.
Finding ways to beautify Los Alamos through art is one of the functions of the Arts in Public Places Board. It has commissioned artists, erected sculptures and added a bit of flair to the Los Alamos landscape through their various projects.
Now the City of Santa Fe will reap some of the benefits of the APP Board. As part of its 400th anniversary, the City Different will receive a gift from Los Alamos County in the form of pottery.
Originally, the APP Board had decided to give the city a gift in the form of a sculpture that would be placed somewhere in Santa Fe, however, after some discussion, it was decided that pottery would make a better gift.
“We worked together with Stephani (Johnson) and the president of the Arts in Public Places Board to determine what made the most sense for the amount allocated. It would have been difficult to obtain a sculpture,” Santa Fe Arts Commission Senior Planner Debra Garcia y Griego said.
