TOPO Map for School Avenue

Topo Map body image

On display throughout 2018 and beyond

This is a temporary public art installation made of thermoplastic by artist Stacy Levy. City of Fayetteville and Walton Arts Center commissioned the artwork with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Its form is a life-scale topographic map of the terrain between Dickson and Mountain Streets and a visual reminder of the issues of water in Fayetteville’s hilly landscape.

Check out a video that explains how the installation was created and the inspiration behind it!
