Reach for the Sky!

Here’s a (slightly edited) photo I took of the statue, The Search, in front of our public library. It’s one of the only remaining large, publicly visible works by local artist Barney Bright. Personally, I’m not really fond of this statue. It is dramatic, though. The library’s currently using a version of this photo as its cover photo on Facebook. We thought about using the statue in our new logo (it is well associated with the library), but it was too detailed to really work.

On a related note, there’s a public art project going on now as part of the town’s bicentennial celebration. I believe there’s some pretty good stuff coming out of it. I’ll get some photos as things go up.

UPDATE: Turns out there are other Bright works still around. Apparently, even the Louisville Clock is back on display (now if we could get the Louisville Falls Fountain going again). I’ll have to check them out!
