City Gets New Cactus Sculpture

City Gets New Cactus Sculpture
On Sunday July 16th, Councilor Tim Barritt along with wife Katie O’Brien - Barritt successfully installed our new piece of art, the Cactus Sculpture. Located along the bike path between Vet Memorial Park and the Wheeler house.  This project was originally intended for middle and high school students in collaboration with the South Burlington Public Library, but student schedules proved too hectic. Instead, educators from Frederick H. Tuttle Middle School, South Burlington High School, and retired teachers from Hinesburg Community School stepped in to assist. Throughout April, the group worked together in the library's Activity Room, spearheaded by Katie O’Brien - and assisted by Julian Barritt, Phuong Thoa Hoang, and Lejla Kelestura and Cindi Stanley.  We truly thank all of them for their hard work and dedication to giving our city some new pizazz. 

Do you or someone you know have an artistic talent?  If you have an idea for a project throughout the city or would like to paint one of our electrical boxes like one of THESE, email Katie O’Brien Barritt today ktobrienb@gmail.com!
