Nora Valdez, The Immigrant

A well-known Boston artist and educator, Nora Valdez’s stone sculptures are exhibited internationally. Her public sculpture “The Immigrant” focuses on the many struggles of an immigrant and “the feeling of being from here, there, and nowhere; the constant feeling of drifting without ever finding a place to call home.” Such a work is most appropriate for Fitchburg, a city shaped by successive waves of immigration.
