Outdoor Projects

The outdoor public sculptures become an integral part of a landscape or streetscape. They reflect public outreach and address how people use the site and something of interest about the cultural or natural history of the area. Some of them create public amenities such as gateways, overlooks or play spaces.

Centuries in Turn
Sculpture creates a courtyard, a central plaza and auditorium entrance, and part of the central walkway at William Woods University, Fulton, Missouri. Sculpture subject: the Universityís ďIvy CeremonyĒ for entering and departing students dating from the Nineteenth Century.
The Black Swamp
Sculpture creates a crossroads in a campus pedestrian mall at Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio. Sculpture subject: the natural history of northwestern Ohio. This area was once a dense swamp. Leaf patterns drawn on one thousand bricks show the leaves of four tree species of the now missing swampland forest. Sponsored by Ohio Arts Council.
Nogelera En Ehecatlan
Sculpture creates a playground with paving game, walkways, earth forms and play structure at an elementary school in Mesquite, New Mexico. Sculpture subjects: the local pecan industry and the windy weather of the town. Sponsored by New Mexico Art Council.
Jazz on Camelback
Part of a collaborative design team project with HNTB for the design of a two-mile long strip park and flood control feature in Phoenix, Arizona, 48th Street between McDowell and Indian School. Art features are integral parts of a flood control basin retention wall, six spillways, and a rest area. Four concrete stamps mark numerous places on the central walkway. Sculpture subject: the unfolding views of Camelback Mountain as park patrons walk from south to north. Sponsored by Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Project.
