  • Center plans to add interactive sculpture to park
    Sunday, January 20, 2019 12:01 AM

    The Wassenberg Art Center has been fortunate to have won a grant through the Ohio Arts Council and matched with funds secured through Avangrid Renewables and the Van Wert County Foundation to create an interactive sculpture in the Wassenberg Art Park! This sculpture will highlight the firefly whose populations are declining due to pesticide use. The sculpture will be fully interactive and will light up using wind and/or human power. A full call-for-entry is available to all sculptors who have an interest in creating a proposal for creating the sculpture. The total amount granted is $20,000. We are very excited to see what ideas artists come up with to further enhance the Wassenberg grounds.
