Albuquerque Walls, Commissioned by City of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Percent for Art Public Sculpture. 8.5 feet x 60 feet x 8.5 feet. Five curved, cast concrete walls; built-in seating areas, covered with 8 colors of blue ceramic tile. I developed pattern and color in broad sidewalk to harmonize with shapes in sculptural elements. Landscaping improvements made in 2010 to this earlier work. Located in park on busy street between historical Old Town and Modern Downtown. Work provides cool respite in dry desert for park pedestrians. Area now fully landscaped. Awarded through national competition.
