The Burro Project: Andale Bernardo
Jim Demetro created a burro sculpture with assistance from daughter Christina called Andale Bernardo. He donated it to the city of Puerto Vallarta and it was installed in the Lazaro Cardenas Park, three blocks south of the River Cuale. This new sculpture’s central figure is a life-size burro, an important part of the history of Mexico and Puerto Vallarta. And in typical fashion, the burro is resisting the efforts of two small boys to move along. One boy pushes while another offers a carrot to encourage it. A dog gets into the act, tugging on the pant leg of one of the boys.

The sculpture gets its name, Andale Bernado, from the boys urging the burro along – “Andale” – and “Bernado,” the name of the burro that posed for the sculptor. Demetro has designed this sculpture to be interactive. Kids can climb on the burro’s back to have their picture taken. (See below.)

Smaller versions of Andale Bernado (pictured below) are available for purchase.

      Spirit of America Memorial by Jim Demetro and Christina Demetro:

The Spirit of America Memorial is a dramatic tribute to the 9/11 tragedy with a circle of life-size bronze statues holding hands, facing outwards, where one part of the circle is open to allow the public to interact with the monument. Visitors can also inspect rare rubble artifacts from the Pentagon and metal from the former World Trade Center Twin Towers.
