A new public sculpture has been installed in Charlotte’s Enderly Park neighborhood.
Measuring 20 feet in height, “Tapestry” is the work of Kentucky-based artist Douwe Blumberg.
“‘Tapestry’ is intended to communicate the value and beauty of diversity in community. Many diverse segments come together to create a harmonious and vibrant unity of image,” Blumberg says in his artist statement.
Blumberg crafted the piece from welded aluminum and magnesium alloy.
The sculpture cost $85,000 and was funded under the city’s Public Art Ordinance, which appropriates 1% of the costs of eligible capital improvement projects for public art.
The Arts & Science Council manages the program for the city and county.
