The centerpiece artwork of downtown Fresno has been completely unveiled.
A 60-foot clock tower, decorated with four clocks and lights, finally was on full display after scaffolding that surrounded it was removed Tuesday.
The refurbished clock tower is part of the $5 million Fulton Street Restoration Project that’s supposed to liven up the downtown area.
It’s made of wood (with old wood that had rotted over the years replaced) as well as fiberglass.
In all, 19 pieces of art have been restored and reinstalled close to their original positions leading into Fulton Street’s grand opening on Saturday.
It took a lot of time, angst and the public holding city leaders accountable, but downtown Fresno now has a glistening display of public art everyone can enjoy and take pride in.
Hopefully, we take care of it this time around.
