Arturo Herrera: ADAM
Currently On View
On view at the corner of N. Main and E. Commerce St., San Antonio, TX
A dynamic new artistic addition to the heart of the city, easily visible from Main Plaza, installed in the winter of 2013. Adam, is a 2,500 square-foot red-and-white abstract wall painting by internationally acclaimed Venezuelan-born artist Arturo Herrera, is sure to draw the attention of residents and visitors alike adding color, vibrancy and great artistic value to the city’s cultural and spiritual center. The dramatic wall painting, more than 25-feet high and 98-feet wide, is the first large scale public installation of the Linda Pace Foundation. Adam embraces and fulfills the Linda Pace Foundation’s mission for the community to experience contemporary art in nontraditional settings.
“The inspiration for the wall painting Adam was about movement, the dynamism of abstraction, and a soaring energetic field, like Spring, when everything awakens,” Herrera said. “The title Adam brings several images to mind: An earthbound beginning; the first individual Pace Foundation’s First Public Art Installation 1 | Page human; humankind. It is a powerful and yet open-ended title that can convey multiple readings to the audience. The color red that I chose for Adam was intentional as red is the color associated with heat, power, physical energy and celebration. Coincidently, red was Linda Pace‘s favorite color, both for its physical and spiritual qualities.”
