JOCELYN Russell, the famed wildlife artist from Alamosa, will be in the San Luis Valley this week for a presentation Sunday, May 15, at Society Hall. Russell and the Woman’s Citizenship Club are hosting “Sculpting a Moment,” Russell’s journey through the Secretariat project and installation in Lexington, KY. The event begins at 4 p.m.
Russell and the Woman’s Citizenship Club will also discuss “Into Thin Air” Cranes in Flight monument that Jocelyn Russell Fine Art and the Woman’s Citizenship Club are collaborating on. Here’s our earlier story on the project.
The Cranes in Flight monument would be installed near the Colorado Welcome Center on Sixth Street. Visit Alamosa, the tourism marketing and promotion arm of Alamosa County, is working on landscaping the property where the former Motorway building sat. The building was demolished earlier this year to make way for daytime RV parking and the Cranes in Flight monument.
