Baseball fans will be able to keep their eye on the ball when they visit Keli McGregor Field at Coca-Cola All-Star Park as The Alameda Corridor Business Improvement District (ACBID) donated a new sculpture to the Gold Crown Foundation.
Created by artist Price “Ted” Davis, the sculpture is a stainless steel baseball suspended from a supporting steel structure designed to match the steel beams of the park itself.
Dedication of this new art piece was the culmination of a collaboration between ACBID, Gold Crown Foundation, Davis, art consultant Arielle Shapiro and Lakewood Heritage, Culture and the Arts.
“All-Star Park is an important community institution and a landmark on West Alameda,” said Tom Quinn, ACBID Executive Director. “We have long dreamed of placing a major iconic public art work in front of the park to celebrate its place in the community.” Full funding for the sculpture was provided by ACBID.
This unique piece of art will be seen by the thousands of people who pass by the park each day and will be a focal point for all of the visitors who attend an event throughout the year.
“We are very excited to have such a unique piece of art displayed in front of Coca-Cola All-Star Park,” said Dillon Barkman, Director of Facilities at Gold Crown Foundation. “We are so thankful ACBID chose Gold Crown Foundation for this piece and look forward to watching it become a key part of the fan experience at our facility.”
