The City of Fremont will officially launch its Rotational Public Art Program in spring 2017.
This program was made possible by an Art Fund that was established in the Downtown, Warm Springs, and City Center (area surrounding the Downtown) community plans. The Art Fund is financed through development fees and will focus on showcasing exciting, interesting pieces of artwork to support the arts and create a sense of identity for these initiative areas. The Art Review Board is responsible for administering the fund and making art selection recommendations to the Fremont City Council. The selected pieces will rotate approximately every two years. The program began in Downtown Fremont and will expand to Warm Springs and the City Center as funds become available in those districts.
The first installation occurred in Downtown with ‘Heartfullness,’ a sculpture by artist Katy Boynton. The artwork is on display through January 31, 2017. A new piece is anticipated to replace ‘Heartfullness’ in spring 2017.
