Four new sculptures have been installed at Carmichael Park (650 E. Southern Street) for the Sculpture on Loan Project of the City of Brighton’s Eye 4 Art Program. The sculptures on display are “Bobcat” by Rosetta, “Rainbow Point” by Jodie Bliss, “Sun To Moon Rotation” by Mary Angers and “Side by Each” by Charlotte Zink. As part of the program, the pieces of artwork will be on display at the park for one year for the public to enjoy.

The Sculpture on Loan Project began with the placement of two pieces acquired in 2015 through the Eye 4 Art Program. Sculptures are selected by the Eye 4 Art Committee. Artists receive a $500 honorarium at placement. The winning “Brighton’s Choice” sculpture will be awarded $1,000, in addition to possible purchase by the public and/or the city. To date, the program has placed 10 sculptures throughout the city thanks to grants from the Scientific Cultural Facilities Districts, the City of Brighton Lodging Tax and the City of Brighton.
Thank you to the volunteers and city departments that have contributed to this program: Brighton Parks and Recreation Department, the Eye 4 Art Selection Committee, the Brighton Public Art Committee, the Brighton Cultural Arts Commission and the Office of Arts and Culture.
