Won from a competition and designed to a budget sponsored by The Friends of Leesburg Public Art. To create a signature public sculpture for the Erick Brown skate Park.
To create a signature piece of skate park themed sculpture. A vertical sculpture that will draw attention to the skate park which sets back off of the road. Then deliver and install within a set budget.
The piece was fabricated by bending tubing into rings and then stacking them on top of each other. Silhouettes depicting an inline skater, BMX biker and skate boarders doing various tricks were cut out of flat sheet steel and welded into the rings. The rings were then polychrome to match the color of the skate park cement and the silhouettes of skateboarders are in complimentary colors

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.
