Clearwater Downtown Boat Slips RenderingA portion of the funding for the Clearwater Downtown Boat Slips and Promenade project, currently under construction, is set aside for public art, and city officials are seeking public opinion on the type of artwork that should be installed at the project site. The Clearwater Public Art and Design Program, coordinator for the city’s artwork installations, is planning a public workshop to discuss the themes and types of artwork that that might be appropriate for the project. Information gathered at this workshop will aid the development of a national call to artists to solicit potential artwork and artists.

A View Through - Sorcerer’s Gate

SorcerersGate.jpgThe first of three sculptures on Cleveland Street

Standing 15-feet tall and 10-feet wide, this magical aluminum sculpture by artist Bruce White, is the first of three pieces of public art scheduled to arrive at the Cleveland Street medians this month. Bruce’s work has been described as “an elegant union of ancient symbolism and contemporary science.” With its mystically-changing spectrums of purples – dependent on the position of the nebula and heavenly bodies - Sorcerer’s Gate provides a refreshing splash of color to the Cleveland Street District. Lifelong artist and Professor, Bruce White of DeKalb, Ill, answered the Call-to-Artists released earlier this year by The Clearwater Cultural Arts Division and was one of the three chosen.
