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.
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.
Downtown Development Board’s Treasurer Geri Aranjo and Vice Mayor George Cretekos attended the celebration of the City of Clearwater’s new outdoor art gallery, Sculpture 360: Art in the Cleveland Street District, and recognized the three artists whose sculptures are on exhibit in the Cleveland Street Medians. “Shanti” (meaning “peace”) by Claudia Jane Klein of Lake Worth, FL is one of three sculptures on Cleveland Street—located across from Starbucks and Jamba Juice.
