Graceful Celebration of Diversity
Outside the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center at 600 River St , Austin TX is a temporary installation of Ender's sculpture “Graceful Celebration of Diversity”
This vibrant sculptures measures 12’ diameter x 72" and is made from Powder Coated Steel & colored acrylic sheet.
The sculpture was created by Martos with TEMPO in 2019, a program by the City of Austin’s Art in Public Places.
"Graceful Celebration of Diversity is a 3D installation that I produced for the prestigious TEMPO art program of the city of Austin. It comprises 8 (eight) color metal cylinders that are arranged in a circle formation, providing an interactive optic art experience to those walking around the piece or going through it. The different colors of the sculpture represent diversity, while its eight cylinders symbolize prosperity; the piece is a celebration of the intrinsic relationship between these two fundamental ideas: diversity and prosperity." - Ender Martos, January 2021
* Please note that while the MACC building is currently closed to the public, the sculpture is located on the MACC grounds which remain open to the public, so it can be appreciated by walking by on the Lady Bird hike & bike trail.
