Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
Ten pieces of artwork that were selected by a special panel of jurors for installation in the Newport Beach Civic Center Park Exhibition has officially opened. The works are comprised of ten unique sculptures and will be prominently showcased in Newport Beach for a period of two years, beginning summer 2014 and ending summer 2016.
A six-member jury made up of arts professionals and members of the city arts commission chose the ten sculptures from 260 submissions. The city sought to have a well-balanced representation of public art that would appeal to a diverse audience of all ages, while including artistic merit, durability, practicality and site responsiveness as criteria in the selection.
A walk through the Civic Center Park, designed by renowned landscape architect firm Peter Walker Partners, now brings art and nature together with the addition of these ten larger-than-life sculptures.
