Virtual Paintout in Puerto Rico

The Virtual Paintout is in Puerto Rico this month.  After my husband mentioned pristine beaches on the west coast near the former USAF base at Ramey, I concentrated my search in that part of the island, and found this colourful sculpture in the centre of the Mayagüez campus of the Universidad de Puerto Rico. 

It is a tribute to the late Miguel Chamoun, a graduate of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.  Here is a link to the Streetview that I used to paint it.
