Henry Moore sculptures in Santa Cruz
The streets of Santa Cruz have been turned into an open-air museum.
Visitors and local people are being encouraged to go on a walk-about to discover the unusual sculptures of Henry Moore.
There are seven, together with an eighth “El Guerrero de Goslar” in La Rambla. The latter is a bronze interpretation of a wounded warrior, created by Moore in the 70s after he found a pebble on a beach which reminded him of a stump of a leg.
The exhibition “Henry Moore. Arte en la Calle” or “Henry Moore. Art in the Street” is on show until December 1st and has been supported by “la Caixa” in the Canaries and the CajaCanarias Foundation in collaboration with the city council and Henry Moore Foundation.
There are Henry Moore sculptures all over the world but this exhibition brings together the greatest number in one city at any one time.
