Ashland, Ore. — A new public art installation has finally been chosen with nearly unanimous¬† approval by the Ashland City Council.

Council members voted Tuesday to approve a sculpture by Seattle based artist Susan Zoccola. The piece, called “The Threshold” will be installed on the Gateway Island, across from the fire station on East Main Street.

The one council dissenter was Carol Voisin, who suggested an amendment to make council approval conditional and allow voters the option to remove the piece in 2020. Her amendment failed.

Zoccola will now begin working with her engineers and fabricators to create the piece.
