Los Seis de Boulder: A Resource Guide: Los Seis de Boulder Sculpture

A guide to resources that document and contextualize the May 1974 "Los Seis de Boulder" bombings

Los Seis de Boulder Sculpture Project

The Los Seis de Boulder Community Sculpture Project was begun in 2019 by CU Boulder students, in collaboration with community members, to create a public art sculpture on the university's campus with portraits of each of the victims who died in the May 1974 bombings.  The sculpture was completed and erected in front of the Albert and Vera Ramirez Temporary Building 1 (TB-1) on campus in July 2019 and formally dedicated on September 6, 2019. "Los Seis de Boulder" stands today in front of TB-1.

More information about the sculpture project can be found on the Los Seis de Boulder Community Sculpture Project website.  The website includes links to press related to the project, photographs from the September 6, 2019 dedication of the sculpture, and a special edition of El Diario de la Gente that was published in September 2019 to commemorate the sculpture's installation.

In September 2020, the University Libraries announced that it had acquired the sculpture as part of its Rare and Distinctive Collections.
