Those who visit Sedona City Hall will now see something new.
On Tuesday, Dec. 27, crews were busy installing 17 bronze statues through-out the campus for display. The statues came from Goldenstein Gallery, which is in the process of moving locations in Sedona but will continue to have satellite exhibits throughout town in the meantime.
“I was asked if we would like certain pieces,” said Nancy Lattanzi, the city’s arts and culture coordinator. “I happily said yes to whatever she was able to transport to our complex.”
Gallery owner Linda Goldenstein wanted to collaborate with the city, by sharing this public art installation for the community to enjoy.
“I am very excited to have our plaza filled with art work,” Lattanzi said. “The city is extremely grateful to Linda Goldenstein, a true gift to our community, as she continually strives and initiates ways to support the arts locally. It has been an extreme pleasure working with her to help make this sculpture garden come to fruition. I encourage the public to come see this notable and unique exhibit at City Hall.”
Goldenstein said she’s been impressed with the fact that city hall displays the paintings and photography of local artists in the city council chambers, mayor’s office and Vultee room. And now sculptures will be another medium that can be displayed.
The pieces will be on loan to the city. Each comes with a plaque about the artist and contact information for those wishing to purchase them. The 17 pieces include three monumental [10 feet in height] and six life-size sculptures as well as and eight sculptured bells.
“I’m very excited about this,” Goldenstein said. “The city was incredibly receptive and excited about it as well. The city is animated by the arts and now city hall truly is.” BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
