A ribbon-cutting ceremony behind Roswell City Hall will formally unveil a new sculpture on loan to the city and open the 2019-20 edition of the ArtAround Roswell Sculpture Tour.

The sculpture "Emergence," by artist Deanna Hoffman, will debut at 5 p.m. Thursday, according to a Roswell Arts Fund announcement. The ribbon-cutting will be followed by giveaways and activities at the Arts Fund table in the East Alley for Alive in Roswell, the every-third-Thursday, April-to-October community festival that also begins that evening.

Nine temporary sculptures are on display around town in this year’s ArtAround show. They join 10 permanent artworks purchased from previous years’ tours. All of the temporary sculptures are available for purchase.

Now in its fourth year, ArtAround Roswell is an initiative of the Roswell Arts Fund in partnership with the city of Roswell. The outdoor exhibition runs from April to March, featuring temporary sculptures on loan from participating artists. Information: https://bit.ly/2UtqbEp
