This week something new and magical is happening in Sedona. (Just like any other week in this beautiful wonderland, right?) The first Roundabouts Art installations will make their appearance in just a few days! Ken Rowe and Kim Kori were the selected finalists in the City’s Art in the Roundabouts Competition a year ago, and have been busy working on preparations for the installation of these monumental works of art. The culmination of this journey will be the Dedication by the City of Sedona on March 16th at 10:00 am.

Celebrating the “Making of Above and Beyond” will be a talk and reception at Sedona Arts Center on Saturday, March 17th from 3 to 5 pm. Sedona Arts Center’s director Mei Wei Wong said “we wanted to give the community a chance to better understand the creation of these sculptures and how well they exemplify Sedona’s vision as a “city animated by the Arts.”

The design of Above and Beyond was selected from over 20 entries submitted to the City from the Northern Arizona region. On the concept of Above and Beyond, Kori and Rowe said “…our first thoughts are of nature and art. Our design incorporates nature, wildlife, the earliest human inhabitants, history and art. And for those visiting Sedona we feel that the birds represent getting away from the hectic responsibilities of life, to play and enjoy the freedom of the outdoors in this unique and beautiful piece of paradise we call home.” Many experts have come together to create these works of art we will admire for decades to come.

The City of Sedona will be holding a Dedication Ceremony on Friday, March 16th at 10 am, a fitting first in our celebration of Arizona’s Centennial. Come join us to learn about the process of creating what will surely become the new Sedona landmark. The Sedona Arts Center is located at State Route 89A & Art Barn Road in uptown Sedona.
