Santa Cruz artist Gene Flores designed a sculpture for Salz Tannery that was both beautiful and functional.


The installation of the Salz fountain in 1975 required an enormous crane to move the sculpture from River Street down into the courtyard.


The Salz sculpture was hoisted by crane and paused on River Street prior to its installation in the tannery courtyard.


Salz Tannery employed about 185 people in 1985.


Jeremy Lezin took this aerial photograph of the Salz Tannery sometime in the 1980's.
