Cactus sculpture unveiled at Mission County Park

New art installation was unveiled at the intersection of the San Antonio River and VFW Boulevard today (May 17) by artist Mel Chin. The new sculpture titled “CoCobijos” which in English means “co-shelter” inspired by wild cacti.

According to a press release, the cacti makes up the roof above one of the native dwellings in an seemingly impossible balancing act. The cacti have flourished over four decades of renovations.
