On Wednesday, July 6, the City of Merriam unveiled “Still Time,” a new multi-sensory public art installation located at the corner of Merriam and Johnson Drives. The sculpture represents the first in a series of five placemaking projects the city will fund over the next five years.

The event coincided with the city’s Wednesday Evening Farmers’ Market / Farmers & Food Trucks festivities at the Merriam Marketplace, 5740 Merriam Drive. The summertime happy hour celebration also featured live music from Timberfall, and fresh produce sold by area farmers.

Attendees walked to the corner of Merriam and Johnson Drives for the presentation of “Still Time.” Remarks from artist Dan Maginn and Merriam Council Member Christine Hands introduced the new public art creation to the community and the Merriam landscape.

“Still Time” was created by DRAW Architecture + Urban Design, in collaboration with sound artist Paul Rudy. It features a 16-foot limestone tower, which houses a large-scale wind chime. The tower and surrounding park creates a new gathering space for Merriam residents and visitors.
