Bloom at McAllister Park

Bloom at McAllister Park

“Bloom” by San Antonio artist Leticia Huerta is comprised of three unique metal sculptures. These 12-feet tall sculptures are series a wildflowers created from elements that resemble larger-than-life bicycle parts. The artwork takes inspiration from trail users and the native wildflowers nearby. The surrounding area has been shaped by years of flooding which has created a rough terrain ideal for hikers and mountain bikers. Silver rings are placed on the flower stems to indicate various flood level. The “Blooms” found at this location are inspired by Winecup, Plains Coreopsis and Mexican Hat wildflowers.
