A crane was required to allow the newest creation from the Hunt County Public Arts group to be seen in downtown Greenville.
An installation effort was begun Friday for “Be Seen” by Brian Weaver. The art project is described as a large, powder blue-coated steel sculpture which is to be situated on a small wall at the Renshaw Davis & Ferguson law firm at 2900 Lee Street.
Weaver’s creation is designed to let people photograph themselves within the artwork, using a double-sided design.
The installation took most of the day and was not complete as of Friday evening.
Hunt County Public Art is seeking proposals from local artists for 2018 art projects.
The group is asking local artists to submit their creative ideas by Sept. 29.
Funding for the 2018 projects will be raised at the upcoming Hearts for the Arts gala in February, which will include an art auction, wine, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment. Kim Coker will chair the gala once again for 2018.
