New Public Art in Redmond Thoughts of Flight

redmondsculptureThe Redmond Commission for Art in Public Places with the City of Redmond have installed the newest piece of public art, the 35 foot tall Thoughts of Flight by local artist Jerry Werner.

The piece is at the intersection of US 97 and Highland/Glacier Avenue.

Currently the City has six sculptures on display in downtown Redmond on loan to the City for two years. In Spring 2013, the City will host a public vote to choose one of the sculptures to purchase as part of the permanent collection.

“Most of our public art collection has been purchased through the donations of the community. We have large donors and we have children donating from their piggy banks. Without these donations, we would not have a public art program. It truly is a community project and endeavor where everyone can participate,” explained Heather Richards, community development director.
