Title'Water Plaza' For Bartle
AbstractThe City Council agreed to a $1 million city contract for new public art at the Bartle Hall ballroom expansion. A Japanese-American artist named Jun Kaneko was awarded the contract. His concept includes sculptural pots on a striped outdoor plaza. This is part of the city's One Percent for Art program. The winner, Mr. Kaneko who lives in Omaha, was selected from among 156 artists and seven finalists. The two council members who voted against this selection were Bill Skaggs and Bonnie Sue Cooper.
