West Texas sculpture to promote peace along US-Mexico border | Lubbock Online

A 20-foot metal sculpture about to go up on a city roundabout was designed in part by Mexican children who have survived the violence in Juárez.

And the sculpture will use recycled metal that came from parts of confiscated guns that were melted.

The $70,000 project, called “Uplift,” is a representation of a flock of 600 birds taking flight. The piece of art aims to promote unity and peace on both sides of the border.
