The iconic "Fire and Ice" sculpture in the heart of downtown Grants commercial district was created in 1998 by Santa Fe artists Howard and Kathleen Meehan as part of the New Mexico Route 66 enhancement project. The sculpture is 28' high and resides in a 30' diameter plaza that incorporates the history and stories of the community. Made with steel, glass, and lava rock to reference the local geography which includes Ice Caves and Bandera Volcano, the sculpture inspired the popular motorcycle "Fire and Ice" rally that was held each year.
