from the Kenosha Community Foundation Arts Fund:
A new outdoor sculpture will grace Downtown Kenosha with the addition of “Heels Overhead” in front of the Kenosha Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, 812 56th St.
“Heels Overhead” will be the 10th outdoor sculpture added to the Sculpture Walk – HarborPark exhibit, coordinated by the Kenosha Community Foundation Arts Fund. The KACVB is sponsoring the sculpture and the installation has received approval from the Kenosha Common Council and support from Kenosha officials, and the Kenosha Arts Commission.
The new sculpture will be installed during National Travel & Tourism Week, on Friday, May 10 at 10 a.m.
The foundation for the sculpture was accomplished when recent repair work in front of the building required the pavement to be replaced. The pavement was poured to the necessary specifications with the hope that it would eventually be home to a sculpture.
“Heels Overhead,” an aluminum piece by artist Paul Bobrowitz, was selected as part of a submission process. The sculpture is 7 feet tall. Bobrowitz currently has another piece titled Rotating Thru the Universe in the existing Sculpture Walk installation. “Heels Overhead” will be on exhibit through the 2013-15 installation and would be replaced with the other temporary sculptures in the 2015-17 installation cycle.
The 2013-15 installation is currently in development. A special Review Panel is now considering 21 possible sculptures submitted as part of a Call for Art process.
The Arts Fund is looking for sponsors for the outdoor art exhibition. To sponsor a sculpture, contact the Arts Fund through the Kenosha Community Foundation, 262-654-2412.
