Feather Point, by Cleveland-based artist Olga Ziemska, Dublin, Ohio’s newest commissioned large-scale permanent public artwork, will be dedicated on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017 at 5 p.m. in Thaddeus Kosciuszko Park, 4444 Hard Rd., Dublin.
Feather Point is a 20-foot-tall stainless steel sculpture cast from trees and branches reclaimed from the site by the artist and a team of community volunteers. The subtly lit sculpture will be visible from the intersection of Hard Rd., and Riverside Dr., in Dublin.
The dedication event will feature insightful comments from the artist, authentic Polish refreshments, music and families of the Polish-American Club of Columbus in traditional dress.
The artist’s site-specific proposal takes inspiration from the Coat of Arms of Kosciuszko’s native Poland and finds commonality with the headdress of Bill Moose, known as the last of the Wyandot American Indian Tribe to have lived in Ohio. Kosciuszko was a military engineer who came to American in 1776, becoming a hero for his role in the Revolutionary War.
Guest parking is at Dublin Scioto High School, 4000 Hard Rd., in Dublin. Shuttle service will be provided to and from the park. The event is rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, please bring an umbrella and dress accordingly.
