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. 

Founder and publisher of Qcitymetro, Glenn has worked at newspapers including the Los Angeles Times, St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, Wall Street Journal and The Charlotte Observer.
