‘Three Blue Spires’ joins Florence’s public art

Additional art to be installed Friday

Sept. 23, 2020 — The first of the latest round of Florence Public Art Committee’s “Art Exposed” Rotating Art Gallery was installed and unveiled Tuesday at the Siuslaw Interpretive Center on Bay Street in Historic Old Town Florence. “Three Blue Spires,” a cast glass and steel sculpture, was created by Gerry Newcomb from Seattle, Wash. Newcomb created the 10-foot-tall piece to echo the “organic forms of water and nature” by combining metallurgy, glass and rocks. All artwork in the rotating art gallery are for sale, with a portion of the price going to the City of Florence for the purchase of future public art displays.
