California approves $15 million for cerritos sculptures
A controversial $15.5 million contract to build a sculpture garden in the desert near the border with Mexico was approved Thursday by the state Legislature.
The sculpture garden was envisioned as a place to exhibit cerrito sculptures and provide an environmentally friendly environment for visitors.
The contract was signed by Gov.
Jerry Brown, who called it “a bold, bold move to create a permanent, ecologically sound site that will serve as a stepping stone for future generations.”
The state has been trying to lure artists from other states to create permanent works of art and have had mixed success.
