‘Musica,’ the Work of Acclaimed Artist Alan LeQuire, to be Transformed with Series of Choreographed Fountains from Preeminent Design Firm WET

Fountains Set for Completion in 2017

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—-(February 25, 2016) Nashville’s iconic Music Row sculpture, “Musica,” will be undergoing a major transformative addition with a series of choreographed fountains, effectively completing the work of acclaimed artist Alan LeQuire, announced today in a news conference by the nonprofit behind the project, The Fountains of Musica Foundation, in partnership with Nashville Mayor Megan Barry and Music Row representatives.

Considered to be the largest bronze figure group in the United States, plans were outlined by foundation chairman Desmond Child, Grammy-winning producer and Songwriters Hall Of Fame Inductee, who revealed the animated rendering. The fountains have been designed by world-renowned WET, a Southern California-based, award-winning design and engineering firm responsible for the world’s most iconic water and fire environments, including the Sochi Winter Olympic Games’ Olympic Cauldron and the fountain at New York City’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

“When the sculpture was unveiled in 2003, funding was not available for the fountains which are essential to the spirit of the project and for the transformation of ‘Musica’ into the landmark this city deserves,” Child said. “As with Rome’s Trevi Fountain and the fountains in Dubai, bringing water to ‘Musica’ will enhance our tourist industry status while completing an important artistic element of Nashville.” Read More
