Ribbon-cutting for Public Art Sculpture at Bernalillo County Animal Care and Resource Center

11/01/2019

Bernalillo County Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada, the Bernalillo County Arts Board and the staff at the Bernalillo County Animal Care and Resource Center invite the community to a part of a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new public art sculpture on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 10:30 a.m. at 3001 2nd Street SW.

The sculpture, titled “Sanctuary,” was created by artist Thomas Tomlinson. It is four-sided with a different theme on each side: dogs, cats, livestock and wildlife.

“In the planning process for a new facility, like our Animal Care and Resource Center, public art is always going to be a part of that plan,” says County Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada. “The architect met with the neighborhood association, the Bernalillo County Arts Board and eventually the artist to develop ideas of where the piece would go and what it might look like and the results of their hard work is this amazing sculpture.”

This project was funded through the 1% for Public Art Program, which is funded by 1% of the county's general obligation bonds passed during the general election every two years.

In addition to the ceremony, Animal Care Services Director Misha Goodman will be recognized for a Lifetime Achievement Award she recently received from the National Animal Care Association for her longstanding work in the animal care field.

There will also be an update on the 22 Doberman Pinschers that were brought in a couple of weeks ago.
