Update On Earth Turtle At Orton Park

June 20, 2012

Artist Tim Sprengelmeyer emailed this message regarding Earth Turtle.  (Highlight is mine.)

First of all I want to thank everyone for your kind words and encouragement! It is truly appreciated! Unfortunately, I am going to have to remove the sculpture from the park when I return from my work trip early next week. Upon consulting with the Madison Arts Commission, they brought it to my attention that allowing a piece of art that is displayed through the Blink Grant program to stay would have a negative impact on the Commission. They said that some would see it as a bait and switch to allow something to remain after the blink period expires and this would harm the integrity of that program. There is a process of permanent art display that the commission will walk me through after the piece is removed. I will let everyone know as soon as I find out what has to happen to re install Earth Turtle. Thanks again for your support and allowing my artwork to reside in your neighborhood!
