One of the proposed designs for the renovation of City Hall drawn by artist Howard Meehan. Meehan, an accomplished sculptor from Santa Fe, N.M., was selected by the city’s Standing Committee on Public Art and Commission on Cultural Affairs for the project after a national search for artists. He is tasked with developing artwork for the City Hall’s Percent for Art project, which is part of the City Hall’s overall construction. Meehan described the centerpiece of his concept as a “30-foot tall stainless steel triangulated sculpture with a 4-foot diameter hole in the top center” that would be erected on the ground of the plaza.
