Abstract steel sculpture secures early backing in public-art initiative

An untitled 8-foot by 5-foot steel sculpture is part of French artist and former part-time Tiburon resident Jean-Pierre Rives ‘Ribbons of Memories’ series. (via the town of Tiburon)

A sculpture of oxidized steel I-bars bent into a curving abstract work has become the first to win the support of a Tiburon panel formed last year to select pieces for display in public spaces.

At its Aug. 10 meeting, the advisory Public Art Selection Panel voted to recommend the Heritage and Arts Commission accept the donation of the untitled 8-foot by 5-foot work by French artist and former Tiburon resident Jean-Pierre Rives.

The commission, set to meet Aug. 24, would itself be tasked with recommending the Town Council to accept the gift; to approve $9,000 in costs for transportation, restoration and installation; and to store the sculpture until a display site is determined.
