26th & S Traffic Circle Sculpture to be Installed Feb. 1


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.

    Woohooo the sculpture is up! Ann and Alex have pictures for you to post. Thanks for everyone who contributed at the Newton Booth Neighborhood Association and the Midtown Recovery House and the City of Sacramento it was truly a community project as the name of the sculpture implies… “Community”

      Kristen–That’s awesome! I just went by 26th & S recently, and the sculpture looks great. Thank you for all your hard work! (I’ll have the pictures up on the blog for everyone to see as soon as I get them.)
