Old Schoolhouse Lecture Series

Categorized as: Seminars & Training
Event tags:


Ten short years ago, Ricardo Breceda was an injured construction worker earning a living selling exotic leather boots. Now his famous metal sculptures are found across the globe, from Canada to Australia with over 125 scattered through Borrego Valley, including his bighorn sheep sculptures which adorn the intersection of Highway 62 and National Park Drive in Twentynine Palms.

Join biographer and photographer, Diana Lindsay, as she recounts how Brecada has become a renowned artist with no previous art training or even an interest in art. Diana will have her book “Ricardo Breceda: Accidental Artist” available for purchase at this event.
