Algonquin Unveils New Public Artworks

The Village of Algonquin debuted the 2011-12 year's additions to its award-winning Public Arts Display Plan at an open house at Village Hall Thursday.

Fifty three artworks from local and out-of-area artists were up for review this year with 33 recommended for consideration to the Village's Public Arts Commission.  Some of the new pieces for outdoor display are whoppers and haven't been installed yet.  Some of the existing indoor artwork's being moved to different locations so a guidebook comes in handy.
 
Fortunately there is one including pictures of what will be where when everything's finally in place.  It's here:
