July 13, 2020

Sculptures depicting oversized desert animals created by Pima Community College Ceramics faculty Hiro Tashima and former Pima instructor Jason Butler are being installed as part of Pima County’s Valencia Road: Wade Road to Ajo Way improvement project.

This week, workers on the county Department of Transportation project are installing the metal shading. This installation is on schedule to be completed by the end of August. This July 7 video from Tashima’s Facebook page shows the eight-foot concrete sculptures being moved from his home to the installation sites.
