COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A $110,000 northern Idaho sculpture titled “Under the Rainbow” that local officials said was too drab has been brightened.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports (https://bit.ly/1Xpq03Q) that workers on Friday attached lightweight PVC pipe to the sculpture in Coeur d’Alene’s McEuen Park.

Artist Howard Meehan created the work but Sean Holm, the city’s liaison to the Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission, says it never performed the way it was supposed to.

The original idea was to have a vibrant sculpture as a gateway to the new park, downtown area and the lakefront.

But locals say it fell short.



The city hired CW Wraps and Marketing to make the work more impressive.

Company owner Sam Carlino says the PVC pipe will illuminate the piece as expected when the park opened in 2014.
