“We are very excited to be offering this public art Installation to our community,” LACA Executive Director Andrew Skinner said. “It’s my hope that ‘cARTier trail’ will add uniqueness to our community while also fostering a community where arts and culture bring us together, feed the creative spirit, and fuel community growth.”

The trail is located along Rath Avenue, just north of Bryant Road. The public unveiling will begin at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9. Those attending the unveiling are encouraged to park in the Rath Avenue/Bryant Road parking lot and follow the trail to the northeast.
