New kinetic sculpture at Sangre de Cristo Arts Center honors retired executive director

A new sculpture at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center is hard to miss in Pueblo.

It stands 20 feet tall, and since it's a kinetic sculpture, the wind sends the steel flower and leaves spinning in every direction.

It can even swoop down to only ten feet tall.

It's been two years in the making, and it honors Maggie Divelbiss who retired in 2010 after being Executive Director of the Arts Center for 31 years.

"The windier it is, the better this piece actually moves," said Nicki Hart, Marketing Manager. "With that you can be in any direction, in front of it, behind it, on the street, and it looks different from whatever angle you're at."

The artist is John King from Lyons, Colorado.

An official unveiling will be held this coming Friday afternoon at 5:00.

It's free to the public, and the artist will be there along with Ms. Divelbiss.
