Project History

$25,000 was available for the design, fabrication, and installation of a vertical, metal sculpture which will be installed in Oakway Park, located adjacent to Emma Wilson Elementary School. The theme of the project is playful and fun and will include a kinetic element located at the top of the sculpture.

Selection Process

On Monday, October 30, 2006 the Oak Way Park Sculpture Project Selection Panel met and recommended semi-final artists to be given a stipend to develop a proposal, budget, and model. Artists presented their models on February 12, 2007. On March 26, 2007 the Selection Panel recommended local artist David Brown to complete the metal sculpture. The Panel's recommendation was forwarded and accepted at the May 9, 2007 Arts Commission meeting. The City Council has also accepted the recommendation.
