A group of monumental sculptures will soon be calling downtown Rockford home.
Five sculptures, created by internationally renowned artists Hans Van de Bovenkamp and Boaz Vaadia, will be on loan to the city for one year. The pieces will be installed in late May along East State Street and North and South Main Street in downtown Rockford.
Josh Albrecht is director of marketing and public affairs for the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. He says the project fits in with efforts to revitalize the city’s downtown.
