SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Downtown Salt Lake City will soon have decorated with temporary sculptures.
It's in an effort to animate sidewalks during the upcoming construction season.
The theme will be "transition" -- to reflect the changing face of downtown. The Crossroads Plaza and Z-C-M-I Center is be redeveloped, the Salt Palace is being expanded and two L-D-S Church college campuses will move to the Triad Center.
Much of the construction will span through the summer.
The head of city's Art Council Nancy Boskoff said the art will offer a reason to come downtown when construction might otherwise scare people away.
She said the sculptures, which will be designed by different artists and cost a total of 80-thousand dollars, will be whimsical.
