Santa Fe Artist Colony

Located at the entrance of the Santa Fe Arts Colony, Bob Zoell’s design emphasizes size and height, as the fiberglass and steel sculpture stands at 34 ½ feet. A depiction of the classic artist palette, the sculptural entry statement creates a black silhouette, suggestive of an otherworldly, alien like, monster trumpeting its presence in the landscape of the industrial Santa Fe area.

Casa Heiwa
