You know it’s officially spring when the good folks from Dogwood Arts change out the sculptures in downtown Knoxville. They’ve been hard at work doing that over the past two weeks.
It’s part of the organization’s Art in Public Places program. I really like the fact that the display is juried, this year by noted sculptor Isaac Duncan III, a New York native who now lives in Chattanooga.
Most of the downtown art is in Krutch Park and the park’s extension on Gay Street. That’s wonderful for me because I cut through Krutch Park every day on my way to work and on my way home.
There also are some pieces from this program at McGhee Tyson Airport, which is a great welcome for visitors — or a welcome back for natives.
Here’s a look at some of the new stuff downtown.
And my very favorite one moves!
