Brief Description

Robert W. Baird & Company Inc. is commissioning a 2-story sculptural element that visually connects the two floors of a Conference Center and runs parallel to the open, white and glass staircase. Functionally, the piece is also a screening device that is intended to provide some additional privacy for the adjacent conference rooms. Mixed media is acceptable, but must be all non-combustible materials (which means NO fabric/textiles or wood). Other acceptable media include glass, metal, ceramics/mosaics, sculpture, and suspended/mobiles. It can include light, but the piece is not primarily a light sculpture nor light fixture. The current expectation is for a series of panels, which the architect plans to support by steel plates and 3/4” diameter threaded steel hanger rods.
