“Palimpsest,” created by V. Skip Willits, looks toward the river at 1st Avenue and 18th Street, near Blue Cat Brew Pub. Viewers will notice handwriting covering the surface of the piece. This was intended by the artist as a way to create texture and interest, rather than something that must be read.
This piece was chosen by the Arts Advisory Committee in the city of Rock Island in 2016, which has participated in Quad City Arts’ public art program since 2007.
