Church Street public art project to be installed soon!

Concrete has been poured for the Church Street public art project being installed in the median across from the Attucks Theater.  Artist Ayokunle Odeleye will be in town soon to complete the installation.

Below are some photos of the beginning phase completed March 5th.

Here is some background about the project:

The Public Art Planning Committee selected artist Ayokunle Odeleye to design and create artwork that will “celebrate the rich history and reflect the diversity of the cultural heritage of Church Street welcoming everyone to a place of inclusion.”  The artwork will signal a gateway, transition and connector to downtown.  The final artwork will be inspiring, stimulate thought and conversation, serve as an example of creativity, and be captivating, lively and unifying.
