Informational Item Only


Staff to provide updates on Victory Park Public Art Sculpture, Williams Brotherhood Park Mural, Stockton Art Nights, Social Media, and Fundraising





Victory Park Public Art Sculpture

Public Work staff is in the process of having the previous footing from the totem pole removed before May 1, 2024. Contractors are waiting on the lighting to be received that is expected within the next four weeks. Once lighting is received and the previous footing is removed the contractors will begin trenching the electrical lines for lighting and pouring footings. City staff is working to coordinate a same day inspection and then the Artist and Contractor will mount the sculpture to the footing. We are anticipating completion within the next six to eight weeks.
