5 new sculptures to be installed in downtown Rockford
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Five new sculptures will be installed in downtown Rockford as part of a new Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau initiative.
The five sculptures, created by Hans Van de Bovenkamp and Boaz Vaadia, will be on loan to the community for one year and installed throughout downtown Rockford.
The sculptures will be featured on East State and 3rd streets (Red Trunk, Elephant Heart), East State and North 2nd streets (Ah'av), South Main and Elm streets (Oracle), and Esplande along the west bank of the Rock River between Jefferson and State streets (Sagg Portal).
These world class pieces of art are part of the RACVB's long-term goal of creating a program that installs sculptures each year on a rotating basis.
