New Rink Fence

fence Nice piece by Linda Borg in today’s ProJo about the new fencing surrounding the downtown skating rink (In Kennedy Plaza, a fence catches the eye). It almost goes without saying that the Steel Yard is behind this project, with funding from the $200,000 “Our Town” grant from the NEA.

The fence represents the combined work of six local artists affiliated with the Steel Yard, a community arts center dedicated to the industrial arts of blacksmithing, fabrication, ceramics and sculpture. . .

The artists agreed the installation had to be interactive, and so the fence includes large concentric openings that will be filled with a selection of ever-changing public art.

Skating in the snow? As for how today’s weather will play out on the ice; the rink stays open as long as the Zamboni can keep the surface reasonably clear.
