Later this summer seven colorful sculptures will be placed throughout in downtown locations including the Wake Forest Town Hall campus, at the Renaissance Centre, and in Miller Park, Holding Park and in the Depot Parking Lot.
Experienced artists and artist teams across North Carolina and beyond were invited to apply for Sculpture Wake Forest. An artist selection committee made up of arts professionals and representatives of the Town of Wake Forest and its Public Art Commission selected the following seven works for the show (the display location for each sculpture is shown in parenthesis):
- Oak Leaf Horizon, by Jim Gallucci (Town Hall campus, 301 Brooks Street)
- Popsicle, by CR Gray (Depot Parking Lot, 110 South White Street)
- Mountain Landscape, by Hanna Jubran (Town Hall campus, east side of Taylor Street and Elm Avenue)
- Transformation 2, by Ray Katz (Town Hall campus, vicinity of Owen Avenue and Taylor Street)
- Waco Sunset, by Rollin Karg (Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 Brooks St.)
- Turning Point, by Wayne Vaughn (Miller Park, 401 Elm Avenue)
- Wood Crate, by Matthias Neumann (Holding Park, 133 West Owen Avenue)
You can see them now by going to www.wakeforestnc.gov/sculpture-wake-forest.aspx.
Selections were based on artistic excellence and the goal of exhibiting a variety of styles and media in appropriate sites. Each of the seven artists will receive a $1,500 stipend.
Once placed later this summer, the sculptures will remain in place for a year, after which a new selection will be made and placed.
