Installation of the Fourth Street Garage’s custom artwork begins this week and will require closure of the eastbound lane of Fourth Street between College Avenue and Walnut Street, and the sidewalk on the south side of the street from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Thursday.
The left parking lane of Walnut Street and the sidewalk on the west side of the street will be closed (and unavailable for parking) between Third and Fourth streets from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Dec. 3-17.
Urban Fabric, a work by Project One Studio with fabrication by Ignition Arts, will feature almost 9,000 aluminum panels to be installed across the structure’s facade. The artwork draws inspiration from the traditional art of quilting.
Funding was provided through the city's One Percent for the Arts Ordinance, which stipulates that at least 1% of the cost of selected capital projects be used for public art. The budget for this project is $385,000.
