Kettering Rocks! International Stone Symposium Artwork Maintenance

Through September and October 2023, a team of professional public art conservationists are treating the limestone sculptures created during the 2002 Kettering Rocks! Stone Symposium.  This is the first cleaning these sculptures have received in over 20 years, and while the darkening of the stone is a normal part of the process of the material aging, the special treatment will brighten the sculptures back up to how they looked several decades ago!

The 2021 Miami Valley Cycling Summit took place in May 2021 throughout Kettering!  To commemorate this special program, the Kettering Arts Council and Kettering residents created short videos about the artwork and architecture that you can easily bike to all over the city! Visit the video gallery.
