Enrique Mart?nez Celaya

— American (born in Cuba, 1964) —

2012, Bronze 132 x 89 x 64 in. The Tower of Snow by distinguished Cuban-born artist Enrique Mart?nez Celaya honors the 50th anniversary of Operation Pedro Pan, which brought thousands of Cuban children, without their parents, to the United States in pursuit of freedom and stability.

"For years, feelings of displacement and foreignness had seemed specific to my experience, then I began to read about the ?Operaci?n Pedro Pan' and I found my story in many of their accounts. This recognition brought along a new sense of belonging to a group larger than myself, a group whose longing did not fit in any one heart." —Enrique Mart?nez Celaya
