Internationally known modern art sculptor and Taos resident Peter Chinni, 90, has died. Chinni reportedly fell Monday evening (Feb. 4) while practicing the first rehearsal of the Taos Community Chorus for a planned spring performance. Members of the chorus said he appeared to strike his head on a pew. 

Fellow sculptor and chorus member T.J Mabrey said, “There was a doctor in the chorus who checked him — and then watched him carefully. At one point he got up and went over to the snack table! Singing and eating! What is more Italian than that! The doctor later called an ambulance when Peter began to feel bad. He was taken to Holy Cross Hospital.”
