Public Art Installation Approved by Board of Trustees
On Tuesday, Jan. 24, the Board of Trustees approved the design for a new, vibrant art piece, the first installation in Erie for the Public Art Group.
In total, 105 artists applied to have their art installed in the Town. The Public Art Group considered each application and design in depth and narrowed the choices to three finalists. Those three artists were then invited to develop a concept for the art piece within 60 days. On Jan. 12, the Public Art Group conducted interviews with the finalists and after a group discussion, Wings to Dreams by Dixie Friend Gay was selected as Erie's first public art piece by the volunteer group.
