The MoRA team and Kathy Hill report that great progress is being made on the Art@thePoint public sculpture to be located at the “point” where Conference Drive meets Monroe Road. Tiles created in community workshops will be fired and glazed in the days and weeks ahead, and will ultimately become the mosaic that is to embellish the stunning 16′ sculpture.
Lead artist Lee Baumgarten has assumed the reins for management of Art@thePoint and following through on the design and concepts created by Leslie Scott. Its aluminum structure is being fabricated at this time and permits for site construction have been obtained. Completion of the sculpture and the first aspects of this gathering space are scheduled for this fall.
