Rendering of M. Jacob Sportspark -Public Art Award
Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona
January 2018, Selected Artist, Sizes to be determined, steel. $18,000
This project is in process, selected on January 19, 2018, contract process initiated,
expect to produce and install August 2018.In its early stages. Awarded as the artist to create a piece on a pillar, not yet constructed, and three complementary freestanding pieces.
I wanted it to be obvious and represent the sports played at the park. But, at the same time, I did not want it to be blatantly evident, but for people to be intrigued. From different angles, it has an abstract quality, but then you discover the three sports represented when viewed straight on. I wanted to convey a sense of motion and a hint of human forms. This theme is then echoed in a more literal way through the freestanding pieces.

[ 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.
