New and improved signage has been installed at Aviation Park in Cobb County.
Designed and fabricated by Kennesaw State University Master Craftsman Program students, the sign is at the corner of Cobb Place and Barrett Lakes boulevard, Town Center Community Improvement District and Town Center Community Alliance said.
The 19-foot-wide stainless steel structure features the name of the park and paper airplane-like figures, some of which are as tall as 10 feet.
Page Burch, sculpture lecturer and Master Craftsman Program coordinator, said the project aligned perfectly with the program’s goal of “creative placemaking within the community.”
“It allowed us to further interact with the Kennesaw area that we are a part of by bringing student-built artwork to the public,” Burch said. “These types of high-impact practices benefit everyone involved and allows us a greater investment into our community.”
The Town Center CID said the project is one of several ways the Alliance, a nonprofit organization that funds beautification projects within the district, is working to enhance Aviation Park, which opened in November 2017 and has open space for airplane viewing, a playground area, Zagster bike stations, restrooms and parking.
The Alliance is also working with KSU’s Department of Museum, Archives and Rare Books on phase two of enhancements to the park. Those plans include a plane display and art, history and STEM-focused exhibits, the CID said. You can learn more about the park by visiting the Town Center CID website.
