A new sculpture soon will be joining Flossmoor’s outdoor Rotational Sculpture Program.

The Flossmoor Village Board voted unanimously Tuesday, Sept. 7, to pay an honorarium of $3,000 for “Reaching for the Sky,” by Hilde DeBruyne. The sculpture is to be placed at Highlands Park near the intersection of Lawrence Crescent and Harolds Crescent for three years, after which it is to be returned to the artist, who was born in Belgium but now resides in Iowa.

Her work is described as “abstract and organic” and “reflecting the circle of life,” according to a report by Assistant Village Manager . . .
