Models of proposed sculptures for the in-progress Mt. Washington Drive and Simpson Avenue roundabout will be displayed at the Downtown Bend Public Library, 601 N.W. Wall St., through Sept. 23.
The three finalists were selected from a call to artists that attracted more than 80 submissions. The public is invited to view and vote on their favorite of the three works of art, which were selected by the Art in Public Places committee.
The roundabout is slated for completion in October, and installation of the selected sculpture is anticipated for spring or early summer 2013. Art in Public Places, a nonprofit organization providing art in locations around Bend, is providing funding.
Voting is also taking place via Facebook on the Art in Public Places page, www.facebook .com/artinpublicplaces bend.
