On November 2nd, the third and final installment of Downtown Clearwater’s Sculpture 360 series was lowered into position by crane on Cleveland Street. “Henry” by Doug Makemson joins “Going Green” and “Linear V” as Cleveland Street’s artistic adornments.

“Henry,” depicting a large playful-looking dog, was constructed from salved materials, including a hay baler, tractor, and gas station supports. The sculpture has an estimated value of $12,000. “Henry” is on display on Cleveland Street between Osceola and Ft. Harrison.

The Sculpture 360: Art in the Cleveland Street District series, now in its second year, is intended to provide “high-quality, vibrant, and engaging public artwork to the citizens and visitors of Clearwater,” while enhancing the reputation of Clearwater as an arts-friendly city. Each piece of art will be displayed for one full year. For more information, visit www.myclearwater.com/culturalarts and click on the Sculpture 360 link
