The Arlington Sculpture Garden Foundation will unveil its newest public art addition at Meadowbrook Park this Saturday, Oct. 24, 2020.

Artists Eddie and Mary Phillips of Mansfield created the piece, “Brighten My Day,” a Kaleidoscope of Grandeur, for the Arlington park’s growing sculpture garden. The public is invited to attend a dedication ceremony for the interactive art piece at 10:30 a.m. at Meadowbrook Park, 1300 E. Dugan St.

Park visitors will be able to enjoy bright colors by peering into the eye-piece of the oversized kaleidoscope.

"I feel during these current times the kaleidoscope might brighten the day of many, put a sparkle in the eye of the weary and cause the brain cells to dance around again,” said Joe Bruner, the Arlington Sculpture Garden Foundation’s art selection chairman. “The piece has both whimsical and artistic greatness. We are so excited to add this to the Arlington Sculpture Garden collection at Meadowbrook Park."

The 54-acre park, also features a nine-hole golf course, hike and bike trails, a basketball court, a Monarch butterfly waystation, a picnic area, playground and park pavilion. Click here to learn more about Meadowbrook Park.
