[ARCHIVED] Public Art Committee welcomes new art at Atlas Valley


PAC will be hosting a dedication to celebrate the latest addition to the public art collection. Merchants will be offering various events and specials to coincide with the event.

The large scale sculpture, “Whimsy,” is Lafayette’s newest addition the City’s permanent art collection. The artwork was donated to the city by artist Mike Davis and installed by John Cohagen of The Snow Goose Companies.
