The world’s tallestpublic artwork will soon be visible on the side of a highway. At 196 feet tall, the Arc Majeur will be a 250-ton steel structure standing over the busy E411 motorway in Lavaux-Saint-Anne, Belgium. It links Namur and Luxembourg, and was chosen because the drivers’ view of the artwork won’t be obstructed by lampposts. According to the artist, the piece will be visible from almost two miles away.
According to The Guardian, the arc will cost over $2.7 million, and installation of its main sections will take place on the evening of August 10 until the early hours of August 11. The arc’s unveiling will take place in mid-October.
