City of Richfield Hits Public Art Sweetspot with Creation of Community Amphitheater.

Approaching the Lake, venue tent in background securely tethered, while the cyclists in attendance are well served with air for tires and tools for minor repairs and tune ups.

"Cajon" is a Latino boom box -- not an electric version that blasts music at too many decibels. These chrome-plated beauties are hollow inside, meant to be played like bong drums.  Musicians "hands" are etched into the metal, symbolic of the joyous music to be played in this new venue.

Passers-by agreed to pose at stainless steel pipes -- themselves symbolic of another musical instrument, the pipe organ.  Music will be everywhere when Amphitheater is in full swing.

Stunning ceramic tiles by local artists tell the story of the City, her residents, diversity of population and interests, but with common love of music and performance, and being tougher as one.
