2016 Walking Sculpture Tour
At age 7, Paloma Herrera quickly became a child prodigy in South America. She studied in Belarus and London. Shortly after, she was invited to the American Ballet Theatre in New York and quickly became principal ballerina. Paloma had unique control of her body and was able to interpret the most difficult music and make magic happen by working in musical phrases, not counts. Her grace, beauty and style inspired this sculpture.
