Program Purpose

The purpose of the Rotating Art Program (RAP) is to beautify our community, promote our cultural identity and encourage artistic engagement, by inviting sculpture artists to offer their creative talents to the City of Green Bay. 

This program provides financial assistance to accepted artists to help facilitate the installation and deaccession of their sculptural work. The program creates an opportunity for temporary works of art to sprout up throughout the community. Six 6-foot diameter concrete foundations have been installed throughout the city to serve as platforms for temporarily installed sculptures to be on display for one year. Accepted artists will be determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on overall project quality and display platform availability. Select artwork will be available for purchase.

Basics #52, Matthias Neumann

Wood, fasteners

Located at the intersection of Shawano Avenue and 12th Avenue.

Over the past five years Neumann has been engaged with a series of public interventions under the title “Basics”, exploring an abstracted notion of form, space and utility in public sculpture. Basics #52 can be experienced both as a sculptural gesture in dialogue with its environment and as an interactive spatial installation in the public realm. Conceived as part of a larger museum installation at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Romania, the series has since had a substantial number of iterations throughout the US, including at Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Wisconsin, at Steven’s Point Sculpture Garden, and a forthcoming installation for Sculpture Milwaukee.

Quilt, Lelia Byron

Wood, paint

Located near the intersection of Oakland Avenue and West Walnut Street.

The patchwork quilt is a traditional craft throughout the Midwest and the world. Handmade quilts are strongly linked to ideas surrounding warmth, memory, home, and the cycle of life. Much like how we are all intricately connected to each other and to the natural environment, in a quilt many different parts (each with its own story) come together to form a complex system. If one part of the quilt is removed, the pattern becomes unbalanced. Likewise actions at any one part of this complex web of
interconnectedness has the potential to impact human rights and environmental sustainability across our global home.
