Public Art Chattanooga, the Northshore Community Public Art Committee, Councilwoman Sally Robinson, County Commissioner Warren Mackey, and guests dedicated Chattanooga Music Man by Pittsburgh artist James Simon, on the Northshore, on Wednesday. The sculpture is at Frazier and Woodland Avenues.
Chattanooga Music Man was selected by the public for the Northshore Community Public Art Project and will be part of the City of Chattanooga’s permanent public art collection. The sculpture was made possible by an Art in the Neighborhoods grant from the Lyndhurst Foundation and support from County Commissioner Warren Mackey and numerous private individuals, organizations and businesses.
Officials said, "The monumental fiddle player speaks to Chattanooga’s rich music and working class culture and celebrates the Northshore – a charming and eclectic community bustling with activity all hours of the day and night."
