Council chambers in the municipal building have looked like a construction zone for the past week. And, in a way, it has been, as artist Sam Tubiolo reinstalls his tile mural, “Valle Grande and Jemez River,” with the help of fellow artist Neil Williams.
Many residents have missed the mural, which resided in council chambers at the old municipal building. Council approved up to $45,000 for the reinstallation of that piece and the commission of two new side panels to augment it.
“We wanted something that didn’t feel like it had been taken from another building and just stuck in there,” said Ken Nebel, vice-chair of the Art in Public Places Board. “So having the side panels really integrates it well.”
The triptych now occupies an entire wall in the new chambers. The central panel — approximately 9 ½ feet high and 8 ½ feet wide — depicts mountain peaks in the distance with a river flowing into the valley below them.
