Lauded by some locals, and mocked by others, the  “Cyclisk” sculpture on Santa Rosa Avenue has been honored in the Public Art Network’s Year in Review.

The 60-foot-tall obelisk, made of recycled bicycle parts, was one of 47 public art projects nationwide that were honored at the Americans in for the Arts convention, held in June in San Diego, said Tara Matheny-Schuster, Arts Coordinator for the City of Santa Rosa.

‘Cyclisk,’ created by by Petaluma artists Mark Grieve and Ilana Spector, and installed in August, 2010, was chosen from 430 submissions to Americans for the Arts, a national nonprofit organization.
