Lesson 1 : Images and Ideas

Idea for the Southwest Pieta

Luis Jiménez worked for over five years developing his image for the Southwest Pieta.

This sculpture was commissioned by the City of Albuquerque and the National Endowment for the Arts to be installed in a city park.

The intended location for the sculpture was near the historic Old Town district of Albuquerque.

Ultimately it was installed in Martineztown, a Mexican-American neighborhood.
