Producing public art in Pleasanton

 

A new statue was unveiled outside the Pleasanton library on Bernal Avenue last week. The statue, "On the Count of Three," was a gift to the city from the Harrington Art Partnership.

Plans to bring the $70,000 statue to Pleasanton have been in the works for four years, and the city's Chamber of Commerce Leadership Pleasanton class of 2015 (pictured) pitched in $2,000.

The bronze statue -- created by Jane DeDecker, a studio artist in Loveland, Colo. -- is made up of a life-sized replica of a mother and father swinging their child between them by the hands.
