Two new pieces of art will make their public debut Saturday, September 10. At the two-day Sagebrush Arts Fest, the Pocatello Arts Council will unveil a pair of Idaho travertine sculptures. The pieces are the work of local artists Malynda Cooper and Amy Jo Popa. Cooper is known for her bronze statue of a Bengal tiger on the campus of Idaho State University while Popa is a lecturer at ISU. “We’d like to thank Amy and Malynda for these additions to public art in Pocatello,” said Frank Hartlieb, Chairman of the Pocatello Arts Council. “We would also like to thank the Pocatello Art Center for allowing us to debut these new pieces at the Sagebrush Arts Fest and as part of the unveiling, we are asking attendees to recommend locations that they’d like to see the sculptures permanently placed.” The debut will be held at noon at the corner of South 5th Avenue and East Carter Street. Also on the schedule is a short program honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Idaho Commission on the Arts. For more information on the Pocatello Arts Council, visit pocatelloarts.org.
