Oakland artist Gina Telcocci molds her curleycue turf sculpture at the east side of Albany’s Memorial Park on Wednesday afternoon.
Work began in late October on the Albany’s new public art piece in Memorial Park, a turf and concrete curleycue designed to match the nearby Veterans Memorial Building and to blend into the park environment.
The spiraling turf design was chosen by Albany’s Art Committee in spring as part of the city’s parks renovation project.
“The spiral will look like something coming out of the earth, “said Susan Adame, co-chair of the art committee. “It will be a very organic-looking piece. “
