A Memorial To Fallen Hispanic Veterans
Cultural Center, located in the historic Barelas neighborhood.
The work is one of two sculptures to be dedicated in a special Veterans Day ceremony in the NHCC's Manuel Mora and Pete Padilla Memorial Park. The artists say that Warriors Repose is meant to specifically honor Padilla and Mora, two young men from Barelas wholost their lives in Vietnam, and, more generally, to honor all of the local Hispanic veterans of the Vietnam War.
Cristina González and Jacob Sisneros speak in greater detail about Warriors Repose and discuss the kind of introspective space they hoped the new work would create for the Barelas neighborhood.
