Entry Artwork that brings the community together, materials: stainless steel, weathered steel, dimensions: 31’w x 15.5’h x 9”d
- Show love between humans & animals.
- Artwork to represent the PACC community.
- Overall image to read from the parking, closer imagery to draw interest as people enter.
- “Seek & Find” detailed imagery of the animals & people of the Center “woven” together, seeing new things hidden in the artwork each time it is viewed.
Worked closely with the project architect to design the setting & structure for the artwork. Meetings with stakeholders and community members to determine what type of imagery & subject matter should be included to represent the larger PACC community. Ongoing collaboration with Pima County to bring the project in on time & within budget.
This artwork is born out of the love between humans & animals; inspired by the Center’s work to help the lives of these animals in need. Seen from a distance is the image of a dog & cat. When closer one can see various portraits of the animals & people that make up the PACC community. The “seek & find” aspect of this work makes for seeing new things hidden in the artwork each time it is viewed. The stainless steel is formed & hand finished to reflect light in ever-changing ways as the sun angle.

[ 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.
