Anti-weapon sculpture due to be unveiled at museum

A sculpture made of toy weapons surrendered by youngsters in 2009 and 2010 will be unveiled this morning at the Museo de los Niños y Niñas in San José. The sculptor is Sylvia Gron, president of an organization that encourages children in the arts, and students from the design program at Universidad Veritas.

The event is at 9:30 and part of the long-running security ministry campaign to teach children to avoid weapons. Toy weapons and other war toys have a negative influence on the formation of Costa Rican youth, said the ministry.
