New Sculpture Unveiled
May 18, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The garden at the Red Wing Motel in Manitou Springs is getting a new mosaic sculpture. The work will be unveiled on Friday, May 18 at 3 pm. Juanita Canzoneri of JCanz Studio is installing a new sculpture at the Red Wing Motel in Manitou Springs, CO. An unveiling for this new mosaic sculpture is scheduled for Friday, May 18 at 3 pm at 56 El Paso Blvd, Manitou Springs, CO.
Suzie Hawkins, the proprietor of the Red Wing Motel, commissioned this sculpture from JCanz Studio of Colorado Springs. The work incorporates tile removed from the pool that used to be situated in what is now the garden area. The sculpture was created to reflect a cultural symbol of hospitality.
The Red Wing Motel was originally built in 1952 and was purchased in 1985 by Suzie Hawkins’ mother, Mamie. Suzie purchased the Red Wing Motel in November 2012 from her mother before she passed. The motel went through its first extensive renovation in 2013-16. This renovation has incorporated art from a number of Colorado artists. The color palette for this project was selected to reflect the richness of color in the Garden of the Gods area just beyond Red Wing Motel. Suzie and Juanita are excited to welcome art lovers to this unveiling event.
