Dedications Set For ‘East Looking West’ And ‘Perspective’ Art Pieces Next Week


The Los Alamos Art in Public Places Board and the Community  Services Department invite the community to the dedication of East Looking West by Don Taylor at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 14, at the Los Alamos County Airport, in Los Alamos. Then again for a dedication of Perspective, a solar water fountain, by Greg Robertson at the White Rock Community Garden next to the former Time Out Pizza in White Rock at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 16.

East Looking West was an Art in Public Places project that was completed in late 2019 and due  to the timing of the COVID-19 Pandemic, an art dedication has not been able to be scheduled  until now. East Looking West is a 48” x 36” digital chromogenic print on Fuji Crystal archive  material and is the view of the final approach to the Los Alamos County Airport. It shows the  runway and the beautiful surrounding area. 

Perspective was the result of a Call for Art in 2020, in response to a request from the White Rock  Community Garden members for a solar water fountain within the space. The piece was installed  in late 2021. Perspective is a hand carved and hand polished natural stone, that stands 5’4” tall,  and has water flowing from the top of the stone that runs down the entirety of the piece. The  holes allow the viewer to look through the piece, using the backdrop of other parts of the garden  to build a more interactive sculpture.

“I am honored to share my work with my friends, associates and all of the people of the White Rock community. After showing my work all over  the Southwest, it brings me great joy to have a public installation so close to home,” said Robertson.
