Caricof is on, in sculpture park

Big art news: A $60,000 sculpture by Denver artist Kathleen Caricof, to be purchased with city and private funds, is destined for the Vogel-Schwarz Sculpture Garden in Riverfront Park. The artist's rendering is above. Here's my story in this week's Art Notes.

Last week's news about Sculpture in the River Market was about the smaller pieces purchased at the annual show by the non-profit of the same name for donation to the city.

The city's portion of the commission, titled "Infinity," is $20,000, the amount allocated by the Little Rock Advertising and Promotion Commission last month for public art. Sculpture at the River Market Inc. is providing the remainder of the commission.

Next up: A conversation about public art. Who should decide what goes in our public spaces?
