It’s ACTUALLY birds that are flowing from the boy…like effervescent bubbles, and inspired by a Diego Rivera inspired project. As he reads the words the thoughts they evoke go into the furthest corners of the world. The artwork is colossal and breathtaking — and celebrates ALL writers, both known and unknown. Presented in huge scale, in a public space for ALL to enjoy…and not limited to an indoor gallery for The Few.
Funded by the McClatchy Fresno Art Endowment, grant written by Frank Delgado and Rebecca Caraveo. Total cost: $150,000.
Artist: Francisco Letelier (Chile)
