Please support Loon, a sculpture for Bishop’s Beach Park at Monday night’s City Council meeting on Sept. 8 @ 6pm.
The City of Homer will make a final decision to accept a sculpture by Rachelle Dowdy for placement in Bishop’s Beach park. The Loon sculpture is the final chapter in the Old Town neighborhood improvement project, which has used art to galvanize a neighborhood vision for safer streets, aesthetic enhancements, and pedestrian amenities. A lifelong Alaskan, Rachelle Dowdy’s work can be found in the Anchorage Museum and the Ted Stevens International Airport. Loon was selected by a panel of diverse Homer residents.
All city residents have an opportunity to support Loon at the City Council meeting during “PUBLIC COMMENTS UPON ITEMS ALREADY ON THE AGENDA” Each resident is allowed three minutes.Bunnell commissioned the work and will also earmark $1000 for its long-term maintenance. If you would prefer to submit a written statement of support, please email me today and I will share your comments with Council on Monday. Share your experiences and your vision for Old Town beautification and the value of public art to promote respect, pride and stewardship of our public spaces.
Thank you for your support!
