ArtCurrents To Be Dedicated June 10th

The City of Coeur d’Alene is pleased to announce the dedication of ArtCurrents on Friday, June 10th. ArtCurrents is the city’s newest art-on-loan program providing sculptures on loan from artists around the country and available for purchase. Fourteen (14) art pieces have been sited in the downtown corridor and City Park for public viewing for one (1) year, or until sold. The ArtCurrents program was commissioned by the Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission, which consists of a twelve-member panel that is appointed by the Mayor and serves a three-year term. The Public Art Ordinance, adopted in June of 1999, established funding of public art that provides public visibility and impact.

The dedication ceremony will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the corner of 6th Street and Sherman Avenue. Mayor Bloem will officiate and coffee and sweet treats will be provided courtesy of the City of Coeur d’Alene.
