New Work of Art For La Paz Malecon
John K. Glaab, CIPS
Under a deep blue sky, beside the sparkling waters of the Bahia de La Paz, a new piece of art was recently unveiled on the Malecon in La Paz. The tiburones (sharks) were designed by Manuel Salvador Rocha Higuerra.  Born in Mulege, located north of La Paz, Manuel has a keen sense of the Sea of Cortez and its inhabitants. The new piece finds its place on the waterside walk along with several others, including a sculpture of a manta raya which was also created by Rocha Higuerra.
Civic officials, representing all three levels of government, were on hand for the festivities and praised Rocha Higuerra’s work. Among those participating in the unveiling of the new sculpture were Agustin Olachea, President of Emprhotur (La Paz Association of Tourism and Hotels) Ruben Reachi Lugo, Secretary of Tourism for Baja California Sur and La Paz Mayor Esthela Ponce Beltran.
Agustin Olachea commented that this work of art is just one more example of the high level of cultural attractions available for visitors and locals to enjoy. He praised members of the business community who were in attendance and who have contributed so much to make La Paz an ideal tourism destination. Mayor Esthela Ponce Beltran, invited all to join in the festivities of Carnaval which started the following day.  She said, “This year’s edition of Carnaval will be very special. There will be something for everyone in the family to enjoy.”
