A Sneak Peek at “See Red Run!”

Here is a sneak peek at the future R Park sculpture, “See Red Run!”, that is currently being fabricated by the artist, Jorge Blanco, in Sarasota, Florida. The sculpture is being assembled for the first time before it gets prepped for painting and then powder-coated with red and yellow paint. The sculpture will be packed and shipped to R Park in early May, reassembled and installed, with the artist on hand to supervise.

When you are at R Park, notice that the round sculpture foundation has been constructed near the “V” of the two trails leading to the parking lot. The concrete foundation is ready and waiting for the sculpture to arrive. Jared Luebe, an engineer and resident of Roeland Park, donated the engineered drawings for the foundation. Jan Duncan, owner of Synergy Construction in Roeland Park, donated the construction of the sculpture foundation, Jan Duncan’s crew will assist Jorge Blanco with installing the sculpture. Many thanks to these two residents and to all of the citizens and businesses who donated to this privately-funded sculpture which is a gift to the City of Roeland Park. A big Thank You to the Arts Advisory Committee, the Parks and Trees Committee and the City of Roeland Park for their remarkable support!
