New sculpture: art with giddy up
A sculpture of a horse has been placed on a piece of land close to the City Park skate park as part of a City Hall art-on-loan program.
Park City built three sculpture platforms as part of the program and will allow selected artists to put their works on them for 12-month periods. The Public Art Advisory Board oversees the program on behalf of the municipal government.
City Hall received three applications in what was its first request for ideas. The horse, named "Flaco" and created by an artist named James Burnes, was the only one selected. Burnes has studios in Santa Fe, N.M., and Weston, Mass. The sculpture is made of steel and cedar wood. It is located between the skate park and Park Avenue.
The piece was put in the location in the middle of November. The artist retains ownership.
Another platform is located approximately 12 feet from the horse sculpture while the other one sits in front of Miners Hospital.

In a time of crisis, the county manager has broad powers. But officials say most haven’t been used during COVID-19 pandemic.
County officials have broad emergency powers to respond to the crisis and protect county residents’ health, safety and welfare. Officials say more of the extreme powers, like establishing a curfew or setting the price on goods, have not been considered.
