Creve Coeur to Unveil First Installation in Rotating Sculpture Display October 19
The City of Creve Coeur Arts Committee along with Thalden Boyd and Emery Architects will unveil the sculpture, “Streamlines,” in front of the Shoppes at Westgate at Olive Boulevard and Tempo Drive on Wednesday, October 19.
The installation is the first in a series of a new art initiative in Creve Coeur to bring temporary art to public spaces. Created by Ali Baudoin of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Streamlines will be on display for a period of one to three years after which it will be replaced by a new sculpture.
The rotating art program was originally outlined in the Creve Coeur Arts Committee’s Master Plan. In consideration of a site plan development proposal, the property owner offered to work with the Arts Committee to provide a location for the display.
“Art has the ability to transform a space,” said Arts Committee vice chair Dan Tierney. “The temporary display will provide artists with a new venue to show off their artwork while also giving visitors an ever-changing encounter with the arts.”
Grand opening for the sculpture is scheduled for Wednesday, October 19 at 6:30 p.m.
