We attended the sculpture show recently at Brandi Fenton Memorial Park. We were extremely impressed with the art work, as well as the enthusiasm of the organizers and their production of the event. Those large sculptures are beautiful but it takes a lot of work to set them up.
I'd love to see an established permanent location for such artwork; a place where the public could see it over the course of a few months AND it would be protected from vandals. The city could put out a call to artists 2-3 times per year; then, artists would not have to move such huge but gorgeous pieces so often and the rest of us would have time to see them again and again. Where is our sculpture park?
