City Hosting Public Meeting for Input About Redesign of Mill Square Park

The meeting will be held on June 19.

On Thursday, June 19, the City of Livermore will hold a public meeting to discuss the redesign of Mill Square Park, including proposed public art for the park. The meeting will start at 7:00 pm in the Palo Verde room at Robert Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Avenue. The public will have an opportunity to review and comment on conceptual designs for the park and artworks.

Located in downtown Livermore at the southeast corner of First Street and South Livermore Avenue, the plaza at Mill Square Park will showcase art commemorating Livermorium, the 116th element on the Periodic Table of Elements. The name of the element was chosen to honor Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's contributions to heavy and super-heavy element research. The City of Livermore is one of only two cities in the United States, and 11 cities in the world, to have an element named in its honor.

Three conceptual art designs were selected out of 158 entries from 34 states. Mayor John Marchand unveiled the three finalists on Livermorium Day, May 30, 2014.

A copy of each of the conceptual designs, the artist's statements, and a place to provide feedback will be posted on the City of Livermore's Public Arts Webpage. Residents who are unable to attend the public meeting are encouraged to share their feedback online.

For more information, including images of the visual display concepts, please visit the City's website at http://www.cityoflivermore.net/news/livermorium_art.asp or contact Jean Prasher at (925) 960-4586.

I like Osman Akan's light sculptures.

They all look like a complete waste of money to me. How about something related to Livermore's past and present industry and culture? Not something you stare at for five minutes and wonder what that hell it is.

It would be nice if people could also sit on it, or children could climb on it, because that park is small.
