The piece titled “A Convenient Inconvenience”, was funded using Community Development Block Grant dollars from the Redevelopment Authority of the City of Green Bay. The 12-foot-tall stainless steel sculpture depicts several stages of a dandelion’s development and is the newest addition to the green-space which houses several other pieces of public art. The original unveiling was scheduled to take place on Thursday, February 4th, 2021 but was canceled due to weather.
