One of our neighborhood’s rather barren-looking traffic circles will be decorated with new public artwork by a local artist next week. On Monday, February 1 at 11:00 a.m., a new sculpture will be installed at the traffic circle at the intersection of 26th and S Streets.
The artist, Kristen Hoard, also lives here in the Newton Booth neighborhood. I don’t think I could give an adequate description of the design (as the blogger has only seen a preliminary design made several months ago); so if you want to know what it looks like, come out to 26th and S on Monday (or anytime afterward) and see it for yourself. I’m sure it will be a welcome addition to our neighborhood.
