Public Art Finds Permanent Home In New Downtown Parking Lot

Downtown Sanford's newly re-paved parking lot will be home to the newest Art-Force Inc public art installation.
Art-Force, a non-profit working to stimulate and diversify development in economically distressed communities, allies artists and manufacturers to create art for public spaces.

For Sanford, Art-Force matched local specialty metals engineering firm WST Industries with designers Chandra Cox and Susan Cannon to create two modern projects in metal, one of which will be six large-scale panels. The other is a selection of tables that will be available for purchase on WST Industries' website.

The zero-waste steel panels, which feature cut-outs that were used to produce the tables, will serve as entry markers to the newly re-paved and updated downtown lot between Wicker Street and Charlotte Avenue, explains DSI executive director David Montgomery.

The art installation will be fully unveiled during the parking lot's dedication in mid-September.
