The Copper Miner

The Copper Miner is a four-foot tall copper sculpture by Tucson artist Alberto Contreras, Jr. It is hammered from sheets of copper trimmed from the copper roof on the Mineral Discovery Center. This sculpture honors the hard work of countless miners whose labors helped establish Arizona as The Copper State.

The Copper Miner is prominently displayed as you enter the Mineral Discovery Center.
