Zamorano Students Take Pride in New Sculpture

Students from Zamorano Fine Arts Academy completed a relief sculpture project based on the work of abstract sculptor Louise Nevelson, who has a large scale sculpture installed at the San Diego Museum of Art sculpture garden.

Forty-eight panels were installed on Zamorano’s North campus. Students drilled holes in the panels and assisted in their placement on the wall. The final length of the piece is more than 30 feet long. Last year’s 5th graders created the panels and this year’s 5th graders put the sculpture in place.

This is the third year that Zamorano students have created a public art project on campus. For more information, contact Principal Carol King at (619) 267-8007.
