The first new art to be installed on Fulton in downtown Fresno since 1964 is now up at Mariposa Plaza.
Napa artist Gordon Huether created “Acero Picados,” a collection of three pieces of metalwork. The work was funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts Our Town program.
It’s the first new art on Fulton since the street became a mall in 1964. It was reopened as Fulton Street in October.
The new artwork will be feted during an official unveiling Monday at 11:30 a.m. featuring Mayor Lee Brand, City Manager Wilma Quan-Schecter, Councilmember Oliver Baines and Huether.
