Three pieces of art by a team of local artists were selected Tuesday to satisfy the city's obligation to provide public art for the Heisler Park renovation project.
The City Council unanimously approved the proposal by Scott and Naomi Schoenherr from the 42 entries submitted for the commission. The components of the Schoenherrs' proposal include a sculpture and two benches, connected by sidewalk murals.
"We tried to do a piece that reflected the environment," Scott Schoenherr said.
"Time Connected," circles of natural stone and ceramics mounted on a plinth, will be installed in a planter at the entrance of the sculpture garden.
Four paths inlaid with stainless steel murals of swimming fish will connect the sculpture with the two benches.
"Continuous Rotation" will be a bench almost 10 feet long, almost 5 feet tall and more than 5 feet wide.
The second bench, "Tidal Pull," will measure 18 inches high, 7 feet long and 5 feet, 8 inches wide.
