Benito Huerta Image

DESCRIPTION: (30 feet x 180 feet) This work consists of a unique colorful floor design created by the artist and fabricated by an artisan skilled in terrazzo installation.

"My work has undergone some evolutionary changes over the years in which I have incorporated nontraditional materials. This experimentation with materials has helped enhance the work visually and conceptually. This new-found knowledge is a result of wanting to grow as an artist. My interest is to expand the boundaries of art and how it reaches and interacts with the community on a daily basis. The act of public art is a collaborative process and learning process, one that I enjoy. Art can be a transformative power on one end and/or decorative on the other, dependent on the idea and its execution."

BIOGRAPHY: Born 1952 in Corpus Christi, Texas. Huerta received a BFA from the University of Houston and an MA from New Mexico State University, Albuquerque.
