Artist Selected for Sculpture in Meridian Township
This traffic circle at the intersection of Hamilton Rd
and Marsh Rd will be the sculpture's site.
MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - Meridian Township has selected artist Tim Higgins of Elsie to create a commissioned public art sculpture in Downtown Okemos, Michigan. Tim Higgins was selected from the nine submitted proposals to create a landmark sculpture in Meridian Township.
Higgins’ proposal, “Meridius Prime,” includes design elements reflecting the Michigan Meridian, a historical survey line for which the Township gets its name. The stainless steel sculpture is tentatively planned for a Spring 2014 installation.
Funding for the sculpture is from a $10,000 Placemaking Public Art Grant received from the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP). The sculpture will be installed on the roundabout/traffic circle located at the intersection of Hamilton Road and Marsh Road near downtown Okemos.
