Santa Fe Outdoor Art Installation

The photo above shows a beautiful public art installation located near the New Mexico State Capital building in downtown Santa Fe. In most cities, public art brings to mind dead war heroes leading charges on cast iron horses or soulless corporate commissions. In Santa Fe, the public art borrows from a much deeper and richer vein of culture and peoples in colorful and creative ways.
