Moonglow Design Art Gallery unveiled sculptor Lorenzo Foncerrada’s latest (and wildest) effort “Big Loie,” which debuted Jan. 25 during a reception at the gallery, 5763 La Jolla Blvd. in Bird Rock. The larger-than-life statue is a fitting tribute to American dancer Loie Fuller, who took 1890s Paris by storm. A modern dance pioneer, Fuller often used grand silks and light effects in performances to dramatize her movements. The artist is asking $10,000 for the work; motorists and pedestrians can enjoy it for free until it’s sold.
