I am pleased to see that the Historic Sculptures Master Plan Committee (HSMPC) has mapped out a 10-year plan for life-sized statues of historic figures to be placed around town (Monitor, Feb.17). The unified theme would be a positive result.
The cost, for 13 statues at $60,000 to $80,000 apiece, is indicated at between $820,000 and $1,040,000. In view of the desperate need of Los Alamos for indigenous industry, I would like to suggest that consideration be given to making that money work a little harder than it would if the money is simply shipped off the Hill in return for work executed elsewhere.
Would it be possible to offer some creative sculptor a 10-year commission to produce the statues, provided the artist locates his or her studio in Los Alamos County?
