DES MOINES, Iowa- A new sculpture is being installed this week at Des Moines Water Works Park. It’s called “River Constellation” and features sound and lights, and 45-foot poles that trace the courses of the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers. Installation is underway, the dedication will be next month.
The Des Moines Water Works Park Foundation commissioned Boston-based composer Beau Kenyon and Brooklyn-based sculptor Natalia Zubko to create the art.
It’s funded privately with support from the Kyle J. and Sharon Krause Family Foundation. Other supporters will be named on rings attached to the sculpture’s poles. Names will be added as the Foundation receives donations for their work to improve the park.
