Art Feature Picked For McEuen Field

The Coeur d'Alene Arts Commission selected “Allium Spring Chorus” as the arts feature for the Third Street entrance of McEuen Park. The $110,000 piece was originally named “Stainless Steel 'Stylistic' Dandelions,” but the artist renamed the sculpture after the plant that inspired the piece. Artist David Tonnesen, of Somerville, Mass., said the inspiration of the design is the Allium plant, a wild onion that is related to garlic and native to Idaho. Coeur d'Alene Recreation Director Steve Anthony said the Arts Commission received a video of the concept which showed how the canopy of the sculpture reacted to the light. “That's really what sold it,” Anthony said/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.
