Label Text:'Mercy' was commissioned as a plaster sculpture by the W.P.A. for the Carrie Tingley Hospital. In 1991, the University of New Mexico, 1% for Art and the Albuquerque Museum decided to work together to have the plaster cast in bronze so that U.N.M., Carrie Tingley Hospital and the Albuquerque Museum, could each have an edition of the sculpture.
