Art Walk along University Avenue is about to get more art.

The mayor asked city council to approve a $27,000 contract with an artist to create three artistic benches. There are other contracts in the works for more benches and a bike rack. The designs were chosen by a community panel. The money comes from a federal grant.

The pieces should be installed by the fall. The street is undergoing some infrastructure work and a public plaza is being built at the Goodman and University.
