Iowa City’s long search for an artist to create the signature public artwork for the City comes to an exciting conclusion with the selection of Cecil Balmond. We’ll now move forward with Balmond’s ideas for an emblematic sculpture, forming the focal point of the downtown pedestrian mall. As a part of the Black Hawk Mini Park Art Project, the art will anchor the many diverse aspects of this massive public project.

The sculpture itself will mark the first phase of the Iowa City Downtown and Pedestrian Mall Streetscape Redevelopment Plan.
