A new sculpture made its debut today in the Paul Smith Children’s Village. It is a 6′ tall rabbit inspired from Alice in Wonderland and is titled “Late Again.” The sculpture was created by noted local artist Guadaloupe Barajas. It was a gift made in loving memory to A. J. “Tony” and E. L. “Jib,” Allegretti by Dan and Leah Allegretti.
“This is a wonderful gift to the Botanic Gardens Children’s Village, as it brings to life Alice in Wonderland which is celebrated each year during the Garden’s annual Mad Hatter Tea Party event, set to occur in early September. It is a great combination of whimsy and imagination and this sculpture will be treasured by generations to come. We are grateful for this gift and the excellent craftsmanship of Mr. Barajas,” said Shane Smith, Director of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens.
