This 20-Foot Slingshot Sculpture Will Be Installed In Franklinton This Fall

A giant slingshot sculpture will soon be the talk of the town in Franklinton.

The slingshot was designed by franklinton resident and artist Andrew Lundberg and Lundberg Industrial Arts. The sculpture will stand 20-feet tall and will be a great photo opportunity for those visiting the neighborhood.

The slingshot will be the centerpiece of Lucas Street Plaza, an area within the River & Rich development that was specifically designed to house a large sculpture. Behind the sculpture, visitors will see a hillside that leads to the Scioto River.
