HELLO, I'M VERONIQUE MASTERSON.
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT EL PASO.

THIS WEEK, CONSUL GENERAL OF MEXICO IN EL PASO JACOB PRADO REVEALED THE DETAILS OF A GIFT TO HONOR BOTH THE UNIVERSITY'S CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION AND THE CONTINUED RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE PEOPLE OF MEXICO AND UTEP.
THE ARTIST SELECTED TO CREATE THE GIFT IS ACCLAIMED MEXICAN SCULPTOR SEBASTIÁN.
FOR UTEP, SEBASTIÁN WILL CREATE "ESFERA CUANTICA TLAHTOLLI."
THIS BEHIND ME IS A RENDERING THAT SHOWS DIFFERENT VIEWS OF SCULPTURE.
THE FINISHED SEMISPHERICAL SCULPTURE IS EXPECTED TO WEIGH SEVERAL TONS AND WILL BE 13 FEET WIDE AND JUST UNDER 13 FEET TALL.
THE PIECE WILL BE COMPLETED AND DEDICATED AS PART OF THE UNIVERSITY'S CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION IN 2014.
LOCAL RESIDENTS CAN SEE SEBASTIÁN'S PIECE "LA EQUIS," A LARGE RED X LOCATED IN JUAREZ AND VISIBLE FROM EL PASO.
