Sea Turtle Sculpture
On October 27, people gathered at the Rice St. Recreation Center to dedicate three sculptures designed by environmental sculptor Lourdes Cue. The sculptures were completed by Ms. Cue and a group of teens enrolled in a program throughout the spring and summer. The three sculptures of a polar bear, a leatherback sea turtle and a camel, are made of earth, grass and salvaged granite. The program was sponsored in partnership with Ward 5, Public Art Saint Paul, the Saint Paul Department of Parks and Recreation and thd District 6 Neighborhood Council, among many others. Funding from Public Art Saint Paul and a Saint Paul Cultural STAR grant brought the project to life. Special thanks to the teens who put so much time and effort into the project.
