New sculpture unveiled in Brownsville represents ‘a memory, a time, and a tradition’

A large black sheet covered La Familia sculpture created by Adán Parades, who resides in Oaxaca, Mexico, and was present in Brownsville, Friday as sounds of conversations are heard among the many in attendance just before the official sculpture unveiling ceremony at Buena Vida Arts and Cultural Park. Opening remarks were made by Mitte Foundation President RJ Mitte about the gift from the Mitte Cultural District Foundation to the City of Brownsville and sister city Matamoros. Over 50 were in attendance, including many city and county dignitaries from both Brownsville and Matamoros along with Brownsville citizens, all waiting in anticipation for artist Paredes to describe his creation. “The ensemble of La Familia represents a memory, a time, and a tradition. The reflection of the present that builds towards the future,” Paredes said before the official sculpture unveiling. Cheers and applause was heard throughout the park as the large black sheet slowly moved over the sculpture as the morning sun glistened on the reflective artwork. The ceremony concluded with traditional Mexican dances by Revival of Cultural Arts in partnership with Costumes of the Americas. (Miguel Roberts/The Brownsville Herald)
