The installation of 11 temporary pieces of public art received their official welcome into the Fayetteville community.

A ribbon-cutting event as held on Tuesday, Dec. 13, at 11 a.m. in front of The Arts Council  for "A Work in Progress:An Exhibition of Temporary Public Art Installations." 

Work in placing the outdoor sculptures began in November and concluded in early December. The art will remain until October 2017.

The artists and artwork are varied. Phil Hathcock's piece "Windstone," made with aluminum, copper and brass, echoes the sounds of clacking bamboo when a good breeze blows near the Fayetteville Area Transportation & Local History Museum. Additional locations of the temporary pieces include Festival Park, City Hall and the Arts Council.

Support for the temporary public art project has been provided by private donors with matching funding from the Arts Council.
