Parks Avery–chairman of the Friends of the LINC–introduced artist Chris Rothermel and donor Scott Chahalis to begin the dedication of this beautiful public art installation.
Newnan Mayor Keith Brady was in attendance and praised the LINC and the determination that went into this beautiful project, and expressed the importance of the LINC, which was perfectly exemplified when a LINC user walked the trail–even in the rain–before the dedication ceremony began.
Chris Rothermel highlighted the importance of bringing art into public spaces. He shared how much he values this experience and having the chance to work on an initiative to spread art throughout the community here in Newnan–and looks forward to seeing the future art pieces his sculpture: Concurrent Metamorphosis II will influence and inspire in Newnan.
Dedication Ceremony Continued
Jim Thomasson spoke about the importance of the LINC and this art initiative to the city of Newnan, including how he hopes to see many more projects like this throughout the LINC.
Parks Avery expressed how important Kim Learnard was to the formation of the LINC and this project before she became the mayor of Peachtree City. This art initiative would not be here without Kim Learnard’s previous role as the director of the LINC–and starting this wonderful project.
The dedication ceremony was a successful event, even with the less-than-ideal weather, but everyone involved with this beautiful, inspiring project came together to celebrate and talk about why they love the LINC so much.
