The City of Norfolk has selected Wesley Clark to design and create exterior artwork for Huntersville Park in Norfolk, Virginia. Multiple pedestrian-scale artworks that tell the story of the neighborhood and encourage walkers to visually explore the new recreational path around the grass practice football fields are imagined.
PROJECT SITE: Improvements to Huntersville Park will be implemented in phases. Phase one includes renovation of the playground with the addition of fitness equipment, new football goal posts, benches, and an additional picnic shelter. This phase has been completed. The second phase includes resurfacing of the tennis courts, a walking path around the football field, a new park sign, and landscaping. This phase is currently being designed and is expected to be completed by fall of 2024. The Planning Committee imagines multiple pedestrian-scale artworks that tell the story of the neighborhood to encourage walkers to explore the new recreational path.
