INDIO ANNOUNCES NEW PUBLIC ART SCULPTURE ON HIGHWAY 111
“Sequitur” Sculpture of Tall Majestic Creatures to Welcome Visitors to the City of Festivals™
INDIO, CA (August 27, 2019) – The City of Indio will install a new public art sculpture entitled Sequitur in the Highway 111 median entryway just east of Jefferson Street and opposite the world-famous Shields Date Garden on Thursday, August 29, 2019. The stainless steel artwork features tall majestic creatures entering the city and beckoning others to follow.
The City of Indio, through the Arts in Public Places program, commissioned Heath Satow to produce the sculptural monument upon recognizing the need to create more public artwork in the community, especially at entryways into the city. Satow is well known for his mastery in mirror polish stainless steel and this will be his inaugural installation in the East Coachella Valley. In 2016, the City’s Public Arts and Historic Preservation Commission selected Satow’s piece through a rigorous process from a field of 90 applicants.
“Heath Satow has created a unique and iconic work of art for the City of Indio,” said Indio Mayor Lupe Ramos Amith. “We are fortunate to have a community that supports public art and I am excited about future art projects we have planned.” The official dedication ceremony is set to take place this October during National Arts and Humanities Month.
