The Cedaredge Town Board tabled consideration on an art purchase of sculpture that would be displayed on Main Street.
Trustee Nancy Sturgill suggested the board's delay, adding, "We might even need to get some public input on this."
Sculptor Tracy Munson has offered the town two pieces of sculpture for sale. One, originally priced at $15,000, is being offered to the town for $9,000.
It features a mother and child theme.
Another, originally priced at $3,600, is offered for $3,000. It depicts a feline wildlife theme.
Town board members expressed excitement about the prospect of having sculpture on the Main Street like the bigger towns of Grand Junction, Montrose and Delta.
The trustees decided to delay consideration of the offer until details can be researched including security arrangements, cost of display requirements, and other matters.blog comments powered by Disqus
