Oppenheimer to be honored with sculpture

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Thanks to a motion passed by county council at Tuesday night’s meeting, J. Robert Oppenheimer might soon find a place among the trees between the Los Alamos Historic Museum and Fuller Lodge.

Community Services Director and Arts in Public Places Board Liaison Stephani Johnson was in council chambers to present a motion asking council to approve the recommendation of the Arts in Public Places Board regarding the purchase and placement of an historic sculpture. After a vote, the motion passed 7-0.

According to county documents, the project has been in the works since the first of the year, when Helen Baran and Nancy Bartlit requested that the Art in Public Places Board consider the purchase of historic sculptures.

This request was made on behalf of the Historical Society and the Fuller Lodge Historic Districts Advisory Board. Since the board thought this project had merit, the project was added to the Board’s Five Year Plan.

It was decided by all involved that the sculptures would be life-size and that the first two would be of J. Robert Oppenheimer and General Leslie Groves. After a decision was made to fund the project, Baran and Bartlit did extensive research to locate possible artists to perform the work.
