Meet Ohio artist Olga Ziemska, whose proposed artwork was selected as Dublin’s latest Art in Public Places for Thaddeus Kosciuszko Park.
Ziemska was inspired by the Coat of Arms of Kosciuszo’s native Poland and Bill Moose, known as the last of the Wyandot American Indian Tribe to have lived in Ohio. Her 21-foot-tall “Feather Point” sculpture will be cast aluminum patterned from trees found on the site. The subtly lit sculpture will be visible from the intersection of Hard Rd. and Riverside Dr. The second sculptural element, “Universal Gathering” will provide a contemplative life cast tree stump accented with a mosaic of glow-in-the-dark aggregate, stone and sand.
Ziemska’s proposal received unanimous support from a selection committee following the February 29 presentation, where members of the community also favored the proposal.
The Dublin Art in Public Places program is administered by Dublin Arts Council and City of Dublin and is funded through an endowment of Hotel/Motel Tax funds from the City of Dublin.
More Art Updates
Don’t be alarmed when you see the blue structure near the Dublin Community Recreation Center – Watch House, one of Dublin’s earliest Art in Public Places projects located in Coffman Park, is undergoing restoration. Over the coming months its copper exterior will be replaced along with other improvements. The blue you see is only temporary.
Look for new artwork at Miracle League Field just in time for opening day, Saturday, April 30. Local artist Robert Mullins created a kinetic sculpture that incorporates iconic elements of the sport of baseball – bats, a ball and pennants – all of which revolve in the wind. Entitled “Ready to Play”, the sculpture will be painted bright colors and include inspirational quotes.
