Boutique Sculpture Garden #1


Sculptor Don Wakefield, created the concept of this installation titled "Boutique Art Garden". This is being exhibited at ArtPrize to share the exciting vision of the Great Lakes Arts Foundation, which is to develop an Art Garden in Metro Detroit. A 40' shipping container is being transformed into a sculpture shelter for his fantasy version of a luxury off road motor coach, powered by duel diesels and assisted by a jet engine. The jet engine can also be lowered and used as a bbq grill. There are doors in the front and back allowing guests to walk through the gallery and experience the mission of the GLAF. The other side of the sculpture shelter is being transformed into a contemporary space of art and entertainment, complete with a stage. Many of the elements are created by recycling and up cycling materials donated by Wakefield and Dave Miller, the VP of the GLAF and President of Duo-Gard.
