Community art: The project to install the interactive 14-foot-tall sculpture at River Road and Florida Street downtown should be finished in the next few days, according to Downtown Development District Executive Director Davis Rhorer. Designed by artist Po Shu Wang, the stainless steel spherical sculpture was donated to the city of Baton Rouge by the Rotary Club, which raised about $350,000 in private funds to commission the sculpture in 2015. There will be a ribbon-cutting and presentation of the sculpture on Friday, Dec. 6 at 5 p.m.
