KENOSHA — Kenosha’s lakefront landscape and surrounding area will again be transformed with the installation of 11 new outdoor sculptures on Thursday, Sept. 14, as part of the biennial Kenosha Community Foundation Arts Fund Sculpture Walk-HarborPark project.
This will be the fourth installation of sculptures since the biennial outdoor art exhibit was launched in September 2011. Every two years, the current sculptures are removed and the new sculptures are installed.
The majority of the exhibit is along the HarborPark promenade, but sculptures are also outside of the the Kenosha Water Utility Wastewater Treatment Plant, 100 51st Place, and the Kenosha Area Convention and Visitors’ Bureau, 812 56th St. The newest site added to the Sculpture Walk is the City of Kenosha’s Civic Center Park, 5600 Sheridan Road. “Teetering on the Brink,” by artist Martin Antaramian, has already been installed at the location. “Free to Fly,” previously on exhibit at the park, has been sold to a private citizen. The new sculptures, which are fully funded through donations, will be displayed for two years, through 2019.
The biennial Sculpture Walk-HarborPark exhibit enhances the permanent public art already on display in the lakefront area. Some of the permanent sculptures include “Christopher Columbus” by Michael Martino, “S.S. Kenosha” by Dan Blue, “Millennium Gate” by David Floyd, and “The Lone Soldier” by Frank Colicki.
