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.

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.”

The sculptures include: “Low-Poly Open Heart (R.I.D.E.)” by m.l. duffy, sponsored by Larkin Wealth Management Group of Wells Fargo Advisors; “Unbroken Circle #4” by Sally Myers, sponsored by Rotary Club of Leesburg; “Kintsugi Heart” by Kim Pourciau Kim, sponsored by FOLPA; “Sun Flower” by Alyssa Imes, sponsored COPA; and “Welcome, the Iconic Hand” by Brian Kirk, sponsored by Keane Enterprises.
