Sculptures on the Move Through City’s “Experiments in Public Art”
Stele and Ostium to be installed next week
The City of Boulder Office of Arts and Culture’s “Experiments in Public Art” is an ongoing series of temporary public installations that serve as a citywide laboratory that expands the potential of public art. In keeping with the program’s focus on inspiring conversation about art through concentrated, temporary installations, the city will remove a sculpture and install two new sculptures next week.
On Oct. 16, the city will remove Rebecca DiDomenico’s Constellatory from the 1400 block of Pearl Street Mall, and will install Stele and Ostium by Collin Parson near Canyon Boulevard and Broadway, just south of the Glen Huntington Bandshell.
The city invites community members to visit Constellatory before it is removed from its current site. Stele and Ostium will be on exhibition through Spring 2019. More information is available at https://boulderarts.org/public-art/temporary/.
Boulder artist Rebecca DiDomenico creates work concerned with the collision and interpretation of various forms of nature, mythology, art history and metaphysics. In DiDomenico’s world, there is no separation between art and life, studio and home. To learn more, visit http://www.didomenicostudio.com/.
