Rainbow Dragon is 65' long, 20' wide and 20' high. The materials are painted aluminum and dichroic acrylic.
This suspended sculpture is in the lobby of a new children's hospital. The color scheme for the hospital is the rainbow. I wanted the sculpture to be exuberant and playful. The client wanted the sculpture to be visible from all floors and they wanted implied rather than actual movement.
I worked closely with Skyline Art Services and the architects, HKS, Inc. I proposed several different pieces and the client chose the dragon. I met with all the stakeholders and resolved all their concerns and incorporated some of their suggestions.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ 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.
