The concept of art as a living entity is what makes public art come alive. La Puerta encompasses multiple visions, relates in significant ways to its community and speaks to the hopes and dreams of people throughout time.
“La Puerta”, a doorway of hope was constructed of rammed earth a material chosen for its sustainable properties and vernacular connections to the earth. The 200 individual keys created by local community members were cast on two 5’ by 18” bronze plates. Each key represents a unique personal story which was shared in a community book by the Artist.
