New sculpture ‘Twin Foxes’ to be unveiled

The city’s Arts Council invites the public to attend the unveiling of the newest addition to the city’s public art collection, a bronze sculpture titled “Twin Foxes” by artist Georgia Gerber.

This artwork was added in celebration of 15 years of international friendship with Mercer Island’s Sister City of Thonon-les-Bains, France, where a duplicate sculpture is on display. Light refreshments will be provided along with a brief comments from both the Sister City Association and the Arts Council.

The sculpture will be installed on a boulder outside the front doors of City Hall at 9611 SE 36th St. The event occurs at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 5. Contact or call 206-275-7609 with questions.
