DULUTH -- After announcing that Michael Dillon was selected to build a piece of permanent art at the newly constructed roundabout at the intersections of W. Lawrenceville Street, McClure Bridge Road and Irvindale Road, the city of Duluth is ready to unveil the piece.

On April 30, Duluth Mayor Nancy Harris and the Gateway Art Project Committee plan to show the public Dillon's design at a Meet the Artist Reception from 7 to 8 p.m.

This event is open to the public in the Duluth City Hall Community Room and is hosted by the Duluth Fine Arts League.

Dillon is the owner of Dillon Forge, an artist/blacksmith studio in Milton. He has been creating artwork for 20 years, with the goal to "build a relationship with each client/community he works with and to bring forth a collaborative vision for a highly crafted work of art."

The Gateway Art Project Committee was formed in January 2012 to plan and implement the process of selecting public art in the center of the roundabout.
