Trail of Dreams, Trail of Ghosts, 2002
City of Santa Fe, DeVargas Park, New Mexico; two locations.
Two works are placed in parks along the route of the old Camino Real. In Frenchys Park, two intertwining stone walls 44 feet in diameter represent the Native American and Spanish cultures that become intertwined as a result of the Camino Real. At the center open area five feet below grade, a mosaic of stone, glass, metal and concrete portrays the trail.
At De Vargas Park, a dome of steel cut-outs casts the imagery of the belief systems of the two cultures in light and shadow.
