Schantz Avenue Bridge
Artist Vicki Scuri (Lake Forest Park, WA) has been selected for the design of public artwork on the Schantz Avenue Bridge, projected for completion in 2019. Scuri's process integrates functionality with artistic vision, and the integration of history, design and community feedback to create a permanent, beautiful landmark for Kettering. View more information about the project.
ArtLocal is a project initiative using art and creative thinking in localized public spaces throughout the city of Kettering. On June 9, Cities of Service hosted a block party to celebrate the Haverstick neighborhood, located adjacent to the Kettering Business Park, off of Forrer Avenue. Art projects brought families together to be creative and have fun! CitySites will soon be selecting an artist to work with Haverstick residents to create new public art in partnership with Cities of Service. More details will be posted here!
The inaugural ArtLocal public artwork, created by Virginia Kistler, was dedicated on Saturday, June 23, 2018 in Oak Park! View more information.
