Art doesn’t show when snow says no

Posted

Lone Tree Arts Center delayed the installation ceremony for the new public art piece, “Tuono,” due to inclement weather. It was scheduled for the April 20 city council meeting, but a spring snowstorm intervened. Sculptors Collin Parson and Jodie Ruth Cooper created the large piece. Appropriately, “Tuono” is the Latin word for “Thunderclap!” It will be on display for one year. Check lonetreeartscenter.org for new date and time.
