Downtown Salem to host outdoor sculpture


A draft of the master plan is posted at, along with a survey to gauge resident feedback.

“We’re looking to continue to build momentum for developing public art throughout the community,” said Mayor Kim Driscoll. “The temporary sculpture exhibition (of Collins’ work) is an integral part of the city’s evolving public art program.”

A member of the master plan working group suggested Collins’ work be displayed this summer, Duncan said.

Collins studied art at the University of California at Berkeley and has a Master of Fine Arts in sculpture from Claremont Graduate University. He focuses on public art and large outdoor sculpture in painted steel, concrete, bronze and plaster.
