Downtown sculpture reveals ‘Faces of Farmington’

A sculpture that reflects the “Faces of Farmington” has begun its journey through downtown Farmington.

Created by artist Doug DeLind as part of the Downtown Development Authority’s Public Art Blueprint, the tall, raku-glazed piece is installed at Salon Legato, 33318 Grand River in the historic Cook building.

A community collaboration, the piece includes clay slabs texturized by Art on the Grand visitors in June. DeLind then cut the slabs into tile, glazed and fired them.

The sculpture will travel to downtown businesses about every two weeks. Follow Downtown Farmington on Facebook or visit downtownfarmington.org for more information and to see where the sculpture lands next.
