The Public Art League is proud to welcome Beneath The Surface by local artist Gregory Stallmeyer (Monticello) to the roundabout at Main and Chestnut in downtown Champaign. The piece was selected from the 2019 Call to Artists and was originally installed in downtown Monticello with assistance from the Monticello Area Arts Council. At the end of the intial lease, the sculpture was moved to the downtown Champaign roundabout with sponsorship provided by The Station (former train station that currently houses Dandelion, Exile on Main St., Maize and others).
The Sculpture is constructed from steel, aluminum, resin and automotive urethane. Of Beneath the Surface, the artist states: Beneath the Surface was created during a time of introspection. Carving away at ones outer shell to reveal what is on the inside. By removing what is unnecessary we can find that which is required to fuel our creativity and contentment."
Please join us in welcoming Beneath the Surface to downtown Champaign.
