Galeria Pacifico owner Gary Thompson sponsors the free Malecon Sculpture Tour that happens every Tuesday morning at 9:30 from mid November to mid April, starting at the Millennium sculpture next to the Hotel Rosita at the north end of the Malecon. The creator of the Millennium, Mathis Lidice, usually starts things off with an explanation of the complicated symbols in his creation.
Along the way, three sculptures by the deceased master, Ramiz Barquet, are viewed and explained: the famous couple on the bench, “ Nostalgia,” San Pascual Bailon” and “El Juglar.” Usually at the end of the tour, Jim Demetro, the sculptor of the “Dancers of Vallarta,” the Woman Washing Clothes,” and “Andale Bernardo,” a new sculpture featuring a burro in Lazaro Cardenas Park, is on hand to explain the story behind his creations and the process of casting monumental bronze sculptures.
