Aluminum Yucca at night
Approaching Albuquerque from the east on I-40, a public art installation welcomes you to the city: The Aluminum Yucca. The 22-foot tall sculpture by artist Gordon Huether was created using salvaged aluminum fuel tanks from F-15 aircraft. At night, the giant yucca is illuminated by LED panels of slowly varying color, powered by solar energy.
