The city of Coeur d’Alene’s newest piece of public art will be dedicated next week at the city’s eastern entrance.
“Take Time,” an 18-foot-high metal sculpture by Teresa McHugh, depicts a ponderosa pine with ribbons of bronze billowing around it, evoking images of sails on the lake but also gracefully spelling “CdA.”
McHugh’s design was selected from among 40 proposed to the city’s Arts Commission. Four finalists were selected, and the final decision was made through public voting at Art on the Green last summer.
The new piece has been placed at the city’s eastern entrance on Sherman Avenue at 23rd Street. The public is invited to a dedication scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.
