Two ribbon cuttings were held Monday afternoon in downtown Webster City, celebrating two art installations that were recently installed.
Community members, city officials and representatives of the University of Iowa were on hand as artist Ali Hval cut the ribbon, honoring her mural project at the corner of Second and Des Moines streets. Hval worked with several volunteers to create the colorful panels reflecting moments of Webster City history.
Dan Miller, an art professor at the University of Iowa, created the new stainless steel sculpture at the City Hall Plaza. The sculpture, which was made possible through grant funding and donations, represents the Boone River and features a canopy that casts a shadow of the city’s street grid on sunny days. The sculpture will be solar powered as soon as the panels arrive. At night, LED lights cast blue and green light onto the piece.
