Bird sculpture was a team effort at Rock Creek
Photos and Story by James Hill
The Manuel Izquierdo sculpture, “Flight of the Dove,” came to Rock Creek in poor condition, but was restored by three departments there. The PCC aviation department provided initial transportation to the campus; the welding department repaired significant damage from exposure and rust; and the auto collision department primed, painted, baked and clear-coated the piece. The campus recently dedicated the art acquisition, which is a four-foot steel sculpture by the late former PNCA faculty member, inside the mall at Building 3.
