DueThe Newport News Public Art Foundation is proud to announce the installation of their nineteenth sculpture in their open air-art gallery. Due by Masaru Bando has a new home in the beautiful Rose Garden at Huntington Park, where many couples embark on a lifetime journey together. This sculpture is dedicated to Carol Capó in lasting and loving memory of her irrepressible spirit and her many contributions to the community and the Newport News Public Art Foundation.

A nonprofit organization, the Newport News Public Art Foundation is dedicated to helping make Newport News an appealing place to live, work, visit and do business by placing monumental-scale works of art by respected sculptors throughout the city. The Foundation also works to encourage and help the public enjoy, appreciate and engage with the art around them, through outreach and education programs.
