The town of Windsor will install a new public art piece by sculptor and longtime resident Sheldon Roberts on Wednesday.
The sculpture will feature two soaring pelicans and be installed in the center of the Seventh Street and New Liberty Road traffic circle, according to a news release.
While installation takes place at 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, the southwest portion of the roundabout will be closed.
A detour will direct drivers to use Kestrel Drive and Hilltop Drive to avoid the closed section of the roundabout.
The private art donation is estimated at $50,000 and depicts two soldered metal pelicans each with a 22-foot wingspan placed on 15-foot pedestals, the release said.
Windsor resident and property developer Martin Lind made a donation that funded the new public art piece.
It is the first piece of public art to be placed in a roundabout in Windsor.
