Palm Springs, California (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
The City of Palm Springs, California recently added “MADEMOISELLE COCO”, the 8’-4” tall aluminum sculpture of a Blue Point Siamese Cat to its art-in-public places collection for placement in front of the City’s new architecturally show-stopping 19,000 square foot modernist no kill animal shelter.
The larger-than-life kitty cat sculpture joins “MONSIEUR POMPADOUR,” the 7’-3” pink poodle; both works of art were created by the internationally renowned wife & husband artist couple, Karen & Tony Barone.
The purchase and acquisition of the larger-than-life sculptures by the Palm Springs City Council followed the unanimous recommendation of the Palm Springs Public Arts Commission. The Palm Springs Animal Shelter’s dedication ceremony will take place October 22, 2011.
