COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (KMTV) — Pottawattamie Arts, Culture, and Entertainment (PACE), the nonprofit developing a $27 million, nearly 95,000 square foot arts and culture center in Council Bluffs, has announced the addition of a new piece of public art to their collection.

Tom Friedman's sculpture, "Looking Up," towers thirty-three feet high and is among the largest of Friedman's works. "Looking Up" makes use of crushed aluminum foil, roasting pans, and baking tins to create a figure, which, through a process of molding and wax casting, retains the imprint of original materials.

This is the second "Looking Up" sculpture of three, and most recently installed on Chicago's lakefront, following a six-month installation in New York City on Park Avenue.

The sculpture dedication is scheduled for Mat 21 and will be on display at Tom Hanafan River's Edge Park through May 2020.
