The first of three large-scale sculptures was installed on Cleveland Street on August 27th. The piece is titled “Going Green” by Jack Howard Potter of Long Island City, NY and is on display east of the Cleveland Street and Garden Avenue intersection.
The sculptures are part of the Sculpture 360: Season II year-long exhibit of public art. The sculpture program provides new works every year in Downtown Clearwater and is funded through a partnership with the Downtown Development Board. The program brings high-quality public art work to enhance the aesthetics of the area for residents and visitors can enjoy.
Two additional sculptures will be installed in the coming weeks to replace the sculptures on Cleveland Street on display since July 2008, which were recently removed.
A public opening and dedication of Sculpture 360: Season II is planned for early September. Docents will provide tours of the artwork and information about the Sculpture 360: Art in Cleveland Street program.
