Join author Diana Lindsay and sculptor Ricardo Breceda for a presentation of the new book "Ricardo Breceda: Accidental Artist" at the San Diego Natural History Museum. Presentation from 4-5pm, and a signing from 5-6pm on January 22nd 2012.

Over 125 life-size metallic sculptures are scattered over three non-contiguous square miles of Borrego Valley surrounded by the immense Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Sculptor Ricardo Breceda’s “Sky Art” is the perfect blend of stunning craftsmanship and placement in open desert landscape. Sculptures have evolved into whim and fantasy – something for everyone on this large desert palette. Startling and stunning as these imaginative sculptures are, they began a story of how they came to be. This is that story, a story of how in ten short years following a devastating accident, Breceda has become a famous artist featured on public television, news media, magazines, and global blogs. He is an artist for children of all ages. Sculptures include Plio-Pleistocene animals that once roamed this desert, Spanish explorers, bighorn sheep and dinosaurs. 280 Full color photos.
