Acero Picados by Gordon Huether


The title and form of the newest sculptures on Fulton Street refer to a steel (Acero) version of the traditional Mexican craft of elaborately cut paper called papel picado, or “perforated paper,” displayed during secular and religious occasions. Huether’s steel version employs themes of butterflies, music, and agriculture.
