Public Art Chattanooga and the Highland Park Neighborhood Association unveiled “re:Pete,” a tribute to Pete the Peacock and the spirit of the Highland Park community, during a winter celebration at Tatum Park on Dec. 19.

Minneapolis artist Randy Walker was on-site for the unveiling of “re:Pete.” Walker worked with the Highland Park community through Public Art Chattanooga’s Art in Neighborhoods program to create the sculpture.

Art in Neighborhoods is a public-private partnership made possible through support from the City of Chattanooga, the Benwood Foundation and the Footprint Foundation.
