Two events today, Jan. 24, mark the public debut of Main Terrain, the inner-city project that has transformed a vacant piece of land into an urban art fitness park.
The grand opening is scheduled at 10:30 a.m. at the park, 400 W. Main St. The 1.72-acre lot lies along Broad Street between West Main and West 13th streets.
Behind the Main Terrain begins at 5:30 p.m., with artist Thomas Sayre, landscape architect Mike Fowler and Tom Norquist of GameTime discussing the design process and thoughts that went into the new park. Their talk will take place at The Chattanoogan hotel, 1201 Broad St.
Both events are free. A cash bar will be available at the evening event.
The centerpiece of the park is a series of sculptures designed by Sayre, who used the Walnut Street Bridge as inspiration. The movable sculpture changes the profile of the art pieces as people interact with it.
Main Terrain features new fitness equipment for adults created by PlayCore.
