Council voted Monday to spend $10,500 to commission artist Ken Anderson to build a piece of public art for the city.

The only problem is the city doesn’t yet know where it wants to put the work.

The sculpture, Nature, Culture, Transportation and Community will depict a Whitehorse theme and is funded as part of the Creative Cities Art Legacy Project.

The city hopes to find a home for the artwork during its 2010 Downtown South charrette.
