“The Cloud” set to be installed at Spur1966 Roundabout near UTEP

“The Cloud,” a monumental new piece by internationally-acclaimed artist Donald Lipski will be installed in the next few weeks in the Spur 1966 Roundabout adjacent to UTEP.

Lipski is creating a floating, shimmering cloud.  According to his website, the structure will emerge from a unique, sunken roundabout that also acts as a below-grade pedestrian crossing.

The cloud structures will be formed from thousands of small steel flaps that will move with the breezes.

The piece is a commission through the city’s public art program.

The Public Art Program for the City of El Paso was adopted by City Council in 2006 as the effort to integrate public artworks throughout the City of El Paso. The Public Art Ordinance established that 2% for the arts program, setting aside 2%from every Capital Improvement Project budget for the acquisition of art for municipal property.

Since its inception, the Public Art Program has strived to offer our local communities and neighborhoods insight, repose, delight and a distinctive sense of place in an effort to achieve the following Public Art Program goals:

  • Enhance the quality of life of residents
  • Support creative and professional growth of the arts community
  • Support economic growth
  • Enhance the experience visitors have of El Paso
  • Promote  authentic images of El Paso as a unique place, community and destination.
