The Asian American Monument Committee of New Mexico requests artists or artists’ teams to submit qualifications for designing a public art sculpture in honor of the landmark civil rights ruling from Territory v. Yee Shun (1882), which affirmed the competency of Chinese Americans to testify in court and have their testimony accepted. This monument also honors the citizens and the legal system of New Mexico, which recognizes that ‘justice and liberty for all’ is a principle for all ages and people. The sculpture should reflect the tenacity of the human spirit and speak to all people – not just Asian Americans, but could include elements of Asian American Culture.
