Overview

Artist Becky Ault sculpted three life size figures, a bench and photo realistic sculpted street scenes. All elements were cast in Bronze.

Goals

The Landscape Architect along with the Artist designed the Figures and the Crates with old realistic photos from the 20th Century to be a part of a new street scape on the Maxwell Street Corridor for the people past and present could enjoy the history of a different time.

Process

ART Research worked with our Client ART Design Group to develop, cast and install three life sized cast bronze Figures, cast bronze bench and cast bronze crates with photo realistic sculpted street scenes that were welded into crates. After ART Design sculpted the original works, ART Research produced rubber molds off the original clay. ART Research also made sand molds and cast from wood slat crates and a bench. All sculptures received a patina and polychromatic coatings. The pieces were then loaded onto a tractor trailer and transported to Chicago for installation. ART Research installed the sculptures through out Maxwell Street Corridor at designated locations that Wolff Landscape Architects noted.
