Members of the Leesburg Commission on Public Arts and the Friends of Leesburg Public Arts on July 18 joined Mayor Kelly Burk to unveil five new sculptures in Raflo Park, according to town officials.
The new artworks are placed along Raflo’s ArtsPARKs sculpture trail and will be on display until June 2022. The pieces are for sale with proceeds benefiting other public art projects in the town, according to officials.
“For any place to feel like home, art must be a component,” Burk said at the unveiling. “Art adds to the quality of life in any community. Thanks to the members of the Friends of Leesburg Public Art and the members of the Commission of Public Art for their dedication to making Leesburg an art destination.”
