2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection
Urban Space Short List

In 2010, I had the privelege of being a part of ArtPrize with the Big Dog Show exhibit in the Sixth Street Bridge Park and in 2011, I enjoyed every minute of hanging my 100 monkeys on the Blue Bridge for my Metal Monkey Mania ! I am so happy to be back this year, in Ah-Nab-Awen Park with my Flight! exhibit. This exhibit was one of my greatest challenges to date and I am very happy to see the final outcome of many hours of design, planning, building, and traveling looking exactly as I had hoped and envisioned. The exhibit consists of nine Stainless Steel birds. Each one weighs over 200 pounds, has a wing span of 12 feet, and are suspended in varying heights (up to 16 feet!) I hope that my exhibit conveys the balance between fear and freedom, the two emotions that must harmonize before flight is allowed to take place. Please stop by the park, introduce yourself, and let me know what you think of Flight ! And please, don't forget to vote ...53284
