AIDS Memorial Sculpture:“The AIDS Memorial Sculpture will be a touchstone for unity, hope, grief, and healing in the Coachella Valley. As a monolithic, singular stone sculpture, the carved surfaces will dance with light, shadow, and reflection," explained Smith in a press release. "Through rotating grooves cut into the gloss surface as matte marks signifying unity through struggle or the soft curve of undulating forms evoking healing over grief, this is a memorial to be touched, to be felt."
"It is a timeless, enduring landmark delicately placed on the land. It is heavy, but light — lifting hope, lifting struggle, and lifting up what is important," he added.
The sculpture will be located in the center of Downtown Park, and it will become a permanent fixture, according to city documents.
(Saturday) 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
