Grant Received for Menendez Statue Conservation

October 8, 2001

The City of St. Augustine announced today the receipt of a SOS! Conservation Treatment Award of $2,000 for the conservation of the Pedro Menéndez de Aviles Statue. The award was granted by Save Outdoor Sculpture! (SOS!), a national program designed to heighten awareness of public sculpture.

The statue of St. Augustine founder Pedro Menendez, located on the north side of City Hall, is an exact replica of a statue, which stands in Menendez’s birthplace, Aviles, Spain. The statue was a gift to the people of St. Augustine from the City of Aviles in 1972 on the occasion of the 407th anniversary of the City’s founding.

The award is made possible with generous support from Target Stores and the National Endowment for the Arts. Former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton announced the program in July 1998 as part of the White House Millennium Council’s Save America’s Treasures. Save Outdoor Sculpture! Conservation Treatment Awards help cover the costs of conserving public sculptures in communities across the country.

These unique awards help communities preserve artistically and historically significant public outdoor sculptures. To date 125 public sculptures in all 50 states and the District of Columbia have received awards to conserve outdoor sculpture.
