New Mexico Sculpture
1989

Art of the Southwest
Made by New Mexico artist Luis Tápia, this painted wooden sculpture features two singing musicians, one playing an accordion, the other a guitar. Says Tápia, "The piece is a dedication to Flaco Jimenez, the great musician from San Antonio, TX. I admire his music. He is relating tradition to culture by singing his Mexican tunes, just as I am with my work."
