WILLIAMSBURG-Triangle Arts and Culture League (TACL) recently gifted the city of Williamsburg with a new art sculpture.

The art sculpture was installed in Bicentennial Park on August 12. TACL commissioned the sculpture, called Fraga Magna Rotabila (Latin for Large Strawberry With Wheels), in 2018 as a gift to Williamsburg. The piece was created by artist Merrilee Cleveland.

“The board of the Triangle Arts and Culture League thanks our donors and the City Public Works Department for making this artful addition to the park happen,” said Terry Buntrock, president of TACL, in a release. “Outdoor spaces have become even more important during the last year, and we hope Williamsburg residents and visitors will enjoy the artwork in this beautiful setting.”

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
