Two 7'9" Cast Bronze Spartans. Designed for Milton S. Hershey to represent their mascot. Installed in a newly constructed roundabout into the School grounds along with Bronze Cast Lettering spelling out the "Milton S. Hershey School"
This was a collaboration with the art students at Milton S. Hershey who handed in designs that they created. They wanted a strong presence so the Woman and Man Spartan Mascots were chosen to represent the strength and determination of the students who at ten Milton S. Hershey. They all have a story to tell about their lives and how they became students at the School.
Becky Ault starts the process by sketching a drawing of the figures based on the students designs that they created. It takes approximately 6 months to a year to Sculpt a 7'9" Figure. The clay original is approved by the Client and then moves into the Mold process. Once the molds are complete they go through wax patterns, ceramic shell and Bronze Pour with breaking out and debating for metal chasing. They are then assembled by welding metal sections together, welds are chased in and the final metal detailing is completed. The last process is the Patina with wax sealant.
ART Research installed Bronze Cast lettering of the school name on the stone walls where each of the Spartans were being installed. The Sculptures were delivered to the school and ART Research did the Installation.

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.
