Batavia approves changes to bridge sculpture
BATAVIA – The look of the next sculpture for the Wilson Street Bridge will change slightly.
Batavia aldermen Monday approved changes to the sculpture, which will be installed in summer. The sculpture, a nod to Batavia’s history, is titled “A Look Back,” and is being made by Oscar Leon and Jessica LoPresti of Highwood.
Originally, the sculpture showed three windmills and an American Indian with a particular headdress and haircut. After the city awarded the artists a $30,000 commission, they traveled to Wisconsin to meet with a representative of the Potawatomi Indians to make sure the piece would be as authentic as possible, Batavia City Administrator Bill McGrath told aldermen.
