The City of Guadalupe got eight new sculptures to help beautify the city Thursday.
City officials said the statues are meant to add color and character to the town and will be placed in prominent locations throughout Guadalupe.
“I think each one kind of tells it’s own little story and I tried to put them all in the proper places to tell that story right,” Guadalupe City Clerk Joice Raguz said.
In total, about 21 statues will be on display for about five years in the Guadalupe.
The city partnered with the Squire Foundation to bring the sculptures to the town. The sculptures are a loan from the Squire Lending Library, which is a library that keeps the legacy of Santa Barbara artist Morris Bear Squire alive.
All sculptures should be installed by the middle of July.
