The artist made a clear Lexan Model for us to enlarge to 35' tall to be installed inside the Wilmer Eye Institute at John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore Maryland. The overall design was to be the focal point inside the atrium by using Stainless Steel with a Polished Finish.
Artist John Safer supplied us with a clear lexan model for us to enlarge. We worked with the Artist on the finish desired on the metal. Samples were produced for approval. ART internally engineered an armature and anchor system for the sculpture. The desired height of the sculpture was 35' tall. Patterns were developed and a drop point grid was designed with Providence Engineering for accurate build perimeters. The sculpture was created in sections and then assembled and hard welded. The concave and convex forms of the sculpture were created using a series of metal forming techniques. The final finish was a polish on all sides of the sculpture
The final Sculpture was stood up and critiqued by the Artist for final approval.

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.
