The new art installation at the Center of Recreational Excellence is in the beginning of installation.
Each post rotates, allowing the statues at the top to spin. In front of each sculpture are chimes and drums.
Funding for the art installation comes from the N.M. Public Arts program, a N.M. Department of Cultural Affairs program where 1 percent of funding for a building — in this case the CORE — is set aside for art. Additional funding for the interactive sculpture was provided by the JF Maddox Foundation.
