A three-dimensional bronze sculpture depicting the Maestas children has been installed in the State Capitol in Denver in honor of the 108th anniversary of the decision in the Maestas case. The statue then will tour other parts of the state and in October it is scheduled to be installed in the Alamosa County Courthouse.
The Maestas case dates back to 1913 when Francisco Maestas tried to enroll his son Miguel, 11, at the school closest to their home in Alamosa, a small town in southern Colorado.
