A couple Clearwater artists are included as part of the latest incarnation of the outdoor Sculpture 360 exhibit coming to Cleveland Street at the end of October.
"Tulip," by Gus and Lina Ocamposilva, of Clearwater, is a colorful, sinewy sculpture that is part of Sculpture 360: Season V.
“It’s good to see some locals on there,” said Chris Hubbard, the city's public affairs director.
The tour is an annual, year long outdoor exhibition running Oct. 29 through Sept. 27, 2013.
A national call to artists resulted in approximately 36 sculptures, Hubbard said during the City Council work session meeting Monday.
City leaders are expected to approve the latest tour at their meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall, 112 S Osceola Ave.
The Public Art and Design Board approved spending $6,000 from the Public Art and Design Program discretionary fund to supplement the project budget. The remaining $4,000 for the project has been donated by the Downtown Development Board. Funds are used for artist honoraria and equipment, materials, and to install and remove the sculpture.
