This sculpture was dedicated in 2009, to honor immigrant Puerto Rican families' contributions to America. It was crafted by the Puerto Rican sculptor, José Buscaglia-Guillermety.The statue is on the grounds of the Learning Corridor, a complex of magnet schools, including one for the arts and another for mathematics. The Learning Corridor is in the south end of Hartford, the center of Hartford's Hispanic population.
The photographs are from last summer, but I wanted to connect them with yesterday's post about the Hartford school named for a Puerto Rican hero.
Hartford has a relatively big and growing Hispanic population. The current mayor is a Latino, as was his predecessor.
