New leaf sculpture installed at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden
The Des Moines metro's newest public art sculpture was installed Wednesday at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden.
- It is dedicated in memory of Tom Urban, Jr., a former Des Moines mayor who died last year.
The big picture: "Threshold" is one of at least three new public sculptures added to the metro this month.
- "Liftoff" was recently installed at the Des Moines International Airport.
- "Pleasant Hill Gate" (also a Novella sculpture) is located at the city's Hickory Glen Park.
Of note: The new art is the centerpiece of the center's Founders Garden, which is under construction and will open in coming months.
- Until then, visitors can see a distant view of the sculpture from inside the Botanical Garden or via nearby trails.
