Installed at Mariposa Plaza on Fulton Street, the three colorful, steel pieces are titled “Acero Picados,” by Napa artist Gordon Huether, and were funded by an NEA grant and are the first new artwork installed on Fulton Street in decades.

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.
