IMOLE BLUE II. FIELD OF MEMORIES

By Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons

Location: Great Lawn Border Garden

(Back to Art on the Grounds)

One of the most significant artists to emerge from post-Revolutionary Cuba, Campos-Pons creates a garden for Montalvo’s grounds with participation from the community. Taking inspiration from the floor plan of a typical Silicon Valley home combined with visual elements drawn from an aerial photograph of Soviet medium-range ballistic missile installations taken during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, this garden is part peace memorial and part living sketch.
