Green Bay Public Arts Commission Selects Artist for Wisconsin Public Service Foundation Sculpture Project

The Green Bay Public Arts Commission has selected Green Bay sculptor Kent Hutchison to create a new public art piece inspired by Wisconsin Public Service’s (WPS) commitment to the city.

Artist Biography

Hutchison, a Wisconsin native and owner and founder of Hutchison Art and Design, was chosen based on his proposal to create “Embark,” a 23-foot-tall aluminum sculpture illuminated by projection and recessed lighting. Drawing inspiration from the significance of the Fox River in the development of the city, the sculpture’s kinetic and interconnecting forms will reinforce the theme of movement.

Funding

The new work of art is being made possible by a generous $100,000 donation from the WPS Foundation, the energy company’s charitable giving organization. The Green Bay Public Arts Commission anticipates unveiling Hutchison’s sculpture this fall, providing an engaging, interactive piece that helps define Green Bay’s sense of place for visitors and community members.

Sculpture Location

The sculpture will be installed at the intersection of Washington Street and Northland Avenue, a prominent location in the city’s downtown area.
