The sun shone brightly Friday afternoon, glinting off of the sculpture entitled “Nexus,” turning it from purple to blue.
A small group of people gathered in front of the Hilltop House Hotel to recognize Arizona artist Lyle London for his sculpture.
The group, comprised mostly of county staff, as well as County Councilor Sharon Stover, former councilor Frances Berting and Arts in Public Places Board members John Hofmann and Joanna Gillespie gathered around as London spoke about the sculpture and his experience in constructing it.
“Nexus” was installed in its current location last fall, after county council approved its purchase and installation at the Dec. 6, 2005, council meeting.
The approval was based on a recommendation councilors received from the Art in Public Places Board.
Board Liaison Stephani Johnson said the board actually began discussion regarding the purchase of a new piece for the county art collection in the fall of 2003.
At that time, board member Min Park was appointed to chair an ad hoc subcommittee to explore options for such a purchase.
The subcommittee created a list of criteria to help guide the selection of the new purchase, which included content, style and material and artist selection.
