Long Description:


SHEDDING THE CLOAK
Martin Luther King, Jr. Promenade - San Diego, California
Jerry Dumlao, Mary Lynn Dominguez and Tamara Dumlao
April 5, 2001



From the artist's web site:

"Shedding the cloak was designed to interact with an existing hedge maze on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade in downtown San Diego. The 14’ high bronze sculpture honors Dr. King and his words urging peace, love and justice. Ti takes the form of a symbolic cloak standing in the center of the maze. Words etched into the concrete curbing along the pathways invite reflection. Upon entering, one reads phrases such as “shedding the cloak of fear”, “ shedding the cloak of malice”, At the center,at the sculpture, one turns and travels out of the maze. Leaving the center, one reads” donning the cloak of tolerance”, “donning the cloak of compassion”.

The sculpture itself acts as a pivotal turning point in attitude. At night the sculpture is lit and a golden glow emanates from its interior, here gold leaf has been applied. The project was a collaboration with Tama and Jerry Dumlao."

Mary Lynn Dominguez
