Borrego Springs is known for the giant outdoor metal sculptures you will find in the desert around town. Dennis Avery, (heir to the Avery Dennison label fortune, lawyer, and philanthropist) lived here with his family. He bought up land in the area and commissioned metal sculptor Ricardo Breceda to create works to be placed on the land he named Galleta Meadows Estate. The sculptures illustrate animals and people that represent the area's history. Traveling around the desert you may see herds of metal horses, a prehistoric dinosaur or mammoth, a native American, a migrant worker resting against a cactus, or a stagecoach and driver. Avery died in 2012, but Breceda, who lives in Aguanga, CA and his team continue to create metal artworks.
