Celebration of “Scherzo” artwork set for Thursday, June 30

“Scherzo” stands outside the Marshalltown Performing Arts Center.

Another exciting piece of public art has found a home in Marshalltown!

Help us celebrate the arrival of “Scherzo” with a Reveal Celebration on Thursday, June 30 from 5-7 p.m. at the Marshalltown Performing Arts Center (east side of Marshalltown High School, 1602 S. 2nd Ave.)

The evening will kick off with a Marshalltown Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting, followed by live performances by MHS students and the Marshalltown Municipal Band. Bring your lawn chairs!

“Scherzo” creator Stephen T. Johnson said the piece features colorful abstract forms based on musical notations such as the bass clef, the forte f and musical notes, plus three kinetic mouth-shaped forms at the top that celebrate the rhythms, sounds and ideas generated within this outstanding performing arts venue.
