Lafayette Blvd. artwork installed June 2018

Artist Joshua Wiener of Boulder Colorado was selected to create an inspiring gateway project to evoke neighborhood pride, ownership and diversity. The goal of the Fairmount Park Neighborhood is to be a safe, aesthetically appealing, fiscally viable, family-oriented, diverse and integrated community with excellent educational, social, recreational, and cultural opportunities, fostering a strong and diverse residential and business community with concern for ecological stewardship.

The artwork consists of five 6’6” limestone sculptures carved take on the appearance  of a trolley car.  The composition represents people coming together and pays homage to the history of the site.  Changing LED spotlights will soon be added to enhance the artwork at night.
