Work of art or Art of Work

What does art mean to you?

A beloved statue from Bisbee Arizona’s past is more than just a metal image of a mine worker.  To many who grew up in Bisbee it embodies the hard-working father, husband, brother, son or friend who spent his life underground in the local mines. It is a tribute both to those who survived and those who did not.

Bisbee's Iron Man, now painted copper, for the mineral wealth of the mines.
