Final Charlottesville ArtInPlace Sculpture Installed

Posted: Updated:

All of Charlottesville's new art is now in place.  The 10th and final sculpture in Charlottesville's ArtInPlace exhibit was installed Thursday afternoon.

"Triomphe" is a steel, concrete sculpture by artist Mike Sohikian.  The sculpture was hoisted to its new home on the Route 250 Bypass by a crane.  The artist climbed aboard to install the final touches.

"I periodically would look in the bed of my truck and it would give me enthusiasm and encouragement to drive the nine hours and 50 minutes to get here to install it, so I think there'll be a real positive feeling about it because it is a representational figure showing triumph," Sohikian said. 

"Triomphe" tops off the 11th season of ArtInPlace.
