SCULPTURE IN THE NEWPORT BEACH CIVIC CENTER PARK EXHIBITION
Ten pieces of artwork have been selected by a special panel of jurors for installation in the Scupture in the Newport Beach Civic Center Park Exhibition. The works will be prominently showcased for a period of two years (summer 2014-summer 2016) in the heart of Newport Beach at the newly created Civic Center Park. The 14-acre, ocean-view site was specially designed by renowned landscape architect Peter Walker as an intended sculpture garden.
A presentation of the selections was made before City Council and approved in May 2014. Installation of the sculptures in the Civic Center Park is anticipated to be completed in September 2014.
