New Public Art Program Launched. The first piece of public art in the City’s new Sculpture Installation Program has been installed at Highway 101 and K Street. The artwork is titled, Orpheus, and is a 22′ tall kinetic sculpture made from titanium and stainless steel by renowned Encinitas artist Jeffery Laudenslager. “It is truly a stunning piece as a gateway to our community,” said Commission for the Arts member Deanne Sabeck.
The program calls for a series of sculptures to be installed throughout the city on a temporary basis. Mr. Laudenslager has loaned the artwork to the City for one year. All project costs for the K Street location, including the installation of a concrete pedestal, was funded by Encinitas Friends of the Arts and a Neighborhood Reinvestment Program grant from the County of San Diego.
An official unveiling ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, October 6, 2018 at 10 a.m. and the public is invited to attend.
