Public Art in Council Bluffs

"Council Bluffs' Public Art Revolution!: The Iowa West Public Art Initiative" by Heather C. Akerberg

Besides work by Brower Hatcher, the public art collection includes three sculptures, Haymarket Rabbits, by Deborah Masouka and three sculptures, Interstate, Circus and Sunrise, by William King. Two additional projects are nearing completion: an expansive sculpture garden, which sits on 22,000 square feet of granite and will showcase 21 works by Omaha's own Jun Kaneko and Molecule Man, a 50-foot-tall, 33,000-pound aluminum plate sculpture by Jonathan Brofosky.
