Art On Loan
The Public Arts Commission installed it's first Art On Loan piece in Central Park on Thursday, October 6, 2016. The interactive steel sculpture entitled "Go Ahead!" was created by Don Herman of Baker City, with metal materials donated by Farm and Industrial. The piece invites participants to turn a crank that causes things to whirl and make noise. The sculpture is on loan to the City for one year. It is for sale, and inquiries about its purchase can be made at City Hall.
