The "Colorado River" as it flows through Austin, Texas flanked by three parks. 84"H x 240" L x 2.5" D, postage stamps on aluminum.
The goal was to create a visually interesting work of art that was relevant to Austin, Texas. The Colorado River flows through Austin and helps shape its culture, especially with outdoor activities. Its presence also serves an ever present geographic reference.
The art consultant and I worked to transform a large commercial lobby wall. Through our collaboration we successfully stayed within budget and met the short deadline.
Although the artwork is 20 feet long, it was made to easily ship and install.

[ manifesto ]
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.
