On Thursday, we had an extremely successful dedication plaque ceremony for the beautiful sculpture project Concurrent Metamorphosis II, which was made possible with sculptor Chris Rothermel as well as donor Scott Chahalis.
This sculpture project has been a long time coming for the LINC and will hopefully lead to much more art throughout the LINC.
Scott Chahalis commented on how this dedication plaque ceremony is one of the first times it didn’t rain during the ceremonies and milestones bringing this eye catching and important sculpture to life.
Chris Rothermel highlighted the difficulty of finishing this project during tumultuous times with supply chain issues. It has been a long journey to get to this moment. Rothermel said, “the times that we were talking from after when it was installed to end like this had to be done trying to explain it to someone how to do it. […] ultimately you have to give, give and take. But the the stone industry is so busy now, they don’t even want to get on a truck for less than $1,000.”
Everyone shared how proud they are at this massive accomplishment for the LINC and their hopes for bringing more public art projects like this one to the Newnan community in the future. Scott said, “Everyone’s busy and crazy and unbelievable. So proud. You did a great job. They really do appreciate you so much.”
