ARTs Environmental Object Making an effort to encourage public awareness of the arts in Wichita Falls, TX (the small city where we are currently living and working), I designed an installation piece that I hope will stop pedestrians and traffic in the burgeoning downtown arts scene. ARTs is inspired by a love of physical signs, typography and the work of Robert Indiana. With a budget of $1200-$1500, I hope to build the ARTs piece 60 x 96 inches from high grade oak materials with a glossy finish on a mobile platform. With the wooden version produced, if I can raise enough money ($8-10K), I will build it from steel. Both pieces will be installed at various intersections around the downtown area.
