A second piece of public art has been commissioned under Abbotsford’s new policy.

A sculpture for the Clearbrook Road interchange will be erected in the spring. Last month, a $64,000 public art piece at the McCallum interchange raised controversy, with the timing of the expenditure questioned by a councillor.

City manager Frank Pizzuto said the new work has been funded as part of the interchange capital project. He declined to discuss the art work or its price prior to unveiling, other than to say it has an agricultural theme.
