Public Sculpture Competition

In an effort to promote and encourage the Cultural Arts in Grove City the Grove City Town Center Inc is sponsoring a Public Sculpture Competition.

Thanks to our First Place Winner John Sunami from Columbus, Ohio.

The sculpture reflects the historic heritage, as well as the dynamic current personality of Grove City.

The tree view of the sculpture has images of the racehorse from Beulah Park, a streetcar from the interurban railway that spurred the city’s growth, a wolf that was part of the hazards that the early settlers faced, and the bees which contributed to the unfortunate demise of the first settler, Hugh Grant.

The community view is centered on a hot air balloon, which celebrates the annual Balloons & Tunes Festival. On one side we see a skateboarder from the Skate Park, and on the other side a swimmer at The Big Splash. They arise from the flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruits, that not only have always been a feature of Central Ohio, but also are found at Gantz Park and the Summer Farm Market.

The Grove City Heritage Tree sculpture is the intersection of these narratives.
