Dedication

A couple of Saturdays ago Guthrie and I attended the dedication of this sculpture on the bridge along Central Ave. over Briar Creek in Charlotte. It's a beautiful metal structure that is inspired by the greenery and water of the creek and was designed with the help of the neighborhood's residents. This work marks the beginning of an area on which the Arts and Science Council here in Charlotte is going to focus new public art in an effort to elevate the area's image.


Artist Jim Gallucci addressing the crowd about his sculpture:


Appreciative residents listen to Jim and others speak about the artwork.
Very soon Ron and I will begin work on the trash receptacle tile project that will be completed this spring. I'm really excited to be a part of a project that will bring color and beauty to an area that is in need of such. Here's a reminder of the final prototype:
