City seeks input on roundabout art

The construction of the roundabout at Highway 20 and Locust Street is well underway, and now the City of Sisters is turning its attention from function to aesthetics.

In consultation with ODOT, city staff is spearheading the process of selecting artwork that reflects Sisters’ heritage and identity.

Kerry Prosser, deputy city manager, noted that community input is pivotal in this process, and a survey seeking public opinion on the theme for the roundabout is available on the city website under “What’s Happening,” https://www.ci.sisters.or.us/administration/page/help-choose-theme-art-new-roundabout.

Public engagement will be an integral part of the selection process, with finalists presenting proposals for community feedback in early 2025.

“Sisters embraces art as a cornerstone of community identity, the Highway 20 at Locust Street Roundabout promises to be not only a functional intersection but a vibrant landmark for residents and visitors alike,” Prosser said. “With an anticipated installation date in Fall 2025, the project signifies a significant investment in Sisters’ cultural landscape.”
