Overview

The project coordinator sought out the style of Luke Achterberg. The space was prepared for a signature piece in his style with a 7′ size range. The materials are automotive paint on steel.

Goals

The commissioners felt like Luke's work had a "Florida feel". The work is vibrant, colorful, and whimsical. These qualities add to the park space in the Doral, Florida, neighborhood.

Process

Luke worked at length with the general contractor developing the park. Many virtual meetings took place to establish the best presentation of the sculpture on the plinth in the park. While Luke, as the artist, developed the sculpture independently in his studio. Timelines and coordination between the Artist and General Contractor went off without incident.
