Thirty large sculptures have been making a colorful splash in Travis Park. Each piece, part of “Mano Factura: Arte Regio,” has an individual flair and style embracing a fun and lively spirit.

The statues, from San Antonio’s sister city of Monterrey, arrived in early January and will remain until March 5. The collaboration between the City’s Department for Culture and Creative Development, Center City Development and Operations Department and the International Relations Office helped to bring the statues downtown to the revitalized park.

Each sculpture depicts two fingers giving the peace sign, yet all are different. Each one represents a different technique used by the artist to create the work, from anime, to popular tattoos, to a disco ball.

“This exhibit gives our community the opportunity to experience art from artists of different geographical backgrounds in the center of downtown,” DCCD Director Felix Padrón said in a press release. “These cultural connections help strengthen the bond between our two cities and open the door for more collaboration.”
