Public Art

public artsIn 2002, Caldwell Fine Arts received a Building Community Bridges Grant in partnership with the Hispanic Cultural Center of Idaho. Janie Aguilar helped to write the grant of $10,500 for a metal sculpture and a ceramic mural titled “The Flora and Fauna of Indian Creek.” This public art in the 800 block of Blaine Street brought attention to downtown redevelopment efforts of the Economic Development Committee of Caldwell.

The National Parks Service Rivers and Trails Program brought two visiting artists, Susan Leibovitz Steinman and Jackie Brookner, to help develop the concepts of metal sculptor Juan Martinez of Boise and muralist Ignacio Ramos of Caldwell. Students of Dr. Garth Claassen at Albertson College of Idaho and Ivak Cooper at Caldwell High School assisted the artists to complete the project during the summer and early fall. Martinez’s second year students in the Leland Selland College of Technology at Boise State University installed the sculpture with the assistance of the City of Caldwell. A member of the National Park Service said, “This project is amazing. The artwork is leading the downtown revitalization. Usually the art comes after the renewal.”

The Building Bridges project generated over $50,000 of community in-kind support and kicked off the first annual Indian Creek Festival on September 27, 2003. The American Welding Society honored Martinez’s work by presenting him the “Image of the Year Award” at its convention in Chicago. Juan was chosen to be part of the team featured on the “Monster Garage” cable TV program, which aired in September of 2004.

In 2009, “Ducks in Flight” and “Blue Heron,” two additional public art pieces by artists who live in Caldwell, were installed at Indian Creek.
