El Pasoans celebrated a significant milestone in the area on Sunday.

This year is the 75th anniversary of the Mount Cristo Rey sculpture in Sunland Park, New Mexico.

An art exhibit of the monument's history was held at the International Museum of Art in Central El Paso.

Mount Cristo Rey was built in the 1930s, and members of the restoration committee say it's not only a religious artifact, but a cultural icon for the community.
