Coming soon to two Chesterfield locations are two pieces of artwork to be displayed as part of the city’s Creative Arts Alliance Public Sculpture Program.
The Chesterfield City Council has approved the installation of the metal sculpture “Dashes” on the north side of city hall on the main circle concourse. The 12-foot contemporary design piece by area artist Jessie Cargas is painted blue.
The city selected “Dashes” based on a much smaller white version and asked Cargas to create the larger size in blue.
“Granny’s Garden,” a bronze work by South Dakota artists Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby will be placed at Eberwein Park.
The public sculpture program includes a number of municipalities that hold a “draft” to select from sculptures made available by participating artists. For a nominal lease charge, the works are displayed for two years by the cities selecting them. After that period, the cities can return them or purchase them outright.
