Catherine Widgery has built more than 40 site-specific public art projects across the US and Canada. The use of wind, light, water and computer controlled lighting programs communicate energy and animate the space within her environmental works. Her particular interest is working with communities and teams to create environmental sculptural experiences that respond to the unique spirit and shape of a place. She knows the best projects are the result of a lively dialogue with the stakeholders and design team. Her award winning projects have been featured on the covers of Sculpture, Landscape Architecture, Espace and World Sculpture News.
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
