The sculpture Tilted Donut #7 by artist Fletcher Benton, which was donated to the City of Lincoln by his estate, is now in place in Trago Park. The sculpture is easily viewed from Antelope Parkway, 22nd Street, and the pedestrian walkways and bike trails nearby. Art Makers Endowment funds helped pay for the transport of the work, enabling Public Art Lincoln and the City of Lincoln to accept this generous gift on behalf of the citizens of Lincoln. Parks and Recreation staff did a wonderful job preparing the site for the installation AND installing Tilted Donut #7, which arrived in several pieces. Work continues on the grounds around the sculpture and the information/dedication plaque should be in place around the first of the year.
Please visit the Fletcher Benton website for more information about the artist or take a look at this informational sheet on the work from the 2010 Vancouver Biennale.
