Cast in bronze, armed with school books and dressed in a hooded sweatshirt with a bag slung over her shoulder, Sofia stands at the Middle/High School bus stop in Telluride, perpetually waiting for the bus. Sofia was unveiled in March 2005 as the first bronze sculpture commissioned by the Art in Public Places Program. Her name comes from the San Sofia mountain range that rises along Telluride's north side. The name, Sofia, is from the Greek word for wisdom.
