Inaugurated on August 11th, 2005 as part of Sculpturesite Gallery's Vernissage exhibition, the on-going exhibit of outdoor sculpture on the public Convention Plaza includes Bruce Beasley's bronze "Alley II", just returned from his important 45 Year Retrospective at the Oakland Museum and two of his recent granite monumental works; Jeffery Laudenslager's graceful 25 foot tall kinetic sculpture "Transamerica Helix" in stainless steel and titanium; "Upbeat", a painted aluminum work by the late Australian sculptor Clement Meadmore; three significant steel pieces by Canadian artist Royden Mills, who was an assistant to Anthony Caro; two bronze figurative works by Peter Schifrin that were used as maquettes for his monumental commission for the San Francisco Arts Institute; Canadian artist Ryan McCourt's "Honky Tonk", a delightful, if weighty, steel riff on the image of a piano; an 11 foot tall work in stainless steel by Hans Van de Bovenkamp in the same series as one recently acquired by Grounds for Sculpture in NJ; and two polychrome steel sculptures by Bay Area's William Wareham.

More recent additions to the public sculpture exhibit on the plaza include Bret Price's "Elbow Room", a powder-coated aluminum piece using his remarkable technique for bending industrial steel, Curt Brill's "Katia", a 9 foot horizontal reclining woman, and east coast artist Steve Tobin's "Steelroots", a larger than life 15 foot tall organic root in bronze.
