EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – An unveiling ceremony is held for a new outdoor public sculpture named “the marker”.
The sculpture features a four-foot diameter mirrored sphere on a ten-foot steel black post.
It resembles an oversized map pin, marking its location as a destination.
The artist says she couldn’t think of a better location.
“You know right here where Evansville began and we’re right by the river front and I think it has good visibility and I’m hoping that it will draw people down to come and just play. I mean this is a piece for people to have fun with.”
The arts council commissioned sculpture is located at WNIN’s studio on Main Street.
City officials say they hope it will become a destination for downtown visitors.
It has already gained a new nickname “you are here.”
