Harborpark sculpture walk artwork approved
At last night’s Public Works committee, the eight sculptures and four alternate sculptures were approved. Natalie Strohm, arts administrator for Milwaukee County, was present at the meeting to thank the committee for their collaboration with the Arts Fund Committee and the selection panel. Previously, the locations for the sculptures were approved; tonight, the actual sculptures were approved.

The sculptures will be in place for a two-year period. Then, the same process that was used to call for these sculptures will be used to call for new artwork to be placed at that time. The pieces will again be approved by this committee.
Alderperson Ted Ruffalo, alderman for the district, was also present at the meeting. Chairman, G. John Ruffolo, thought that this was a wonderful idea. Volunteers from the district raised funds for the project, and fine art sculptures were chosen. Ruffolo said that the “Mayor likes the golf ball one.” Ruffolo also stated that the alderman of the district is “lucky to have volunteers to do his work for him.”
