Site 1 Matriarchal Moon Creature by artist Reven Swanson, CO
Medium: Kinetic Steel
Dimensions: 15’ x 7’ x 3.5’
Reaching across the sky, this flying creature balances the heavens. The sculpture suggests dance, celebration and natural harmony. She speaks for the universal woman who balances our modern world alongside her instinctual natural self.
Site 2 Luna by artist Dejan Pejovic, NY
Medium: Bronze and Steel
Dimensions: 36” x 36” x 36”
Luna’s structure is that of a dodecahedron, the Platonic solid derived from the pentagon. My interest is in the interplay of elements that are geometric and organic; concrete and transcendental – a union of opposites. This is one of a series that begin, I think, with admiration of the Gothic Cathedral.
Site 3 Wings of Freedeom by artist Dimitry Domani, NM
Medium: Bronze and Steel
Dimensions: 80” x 19” x 14”
Through my art, I celebrate life and strive to capture the beauty within humanity. I believe the figure carries significant meaning, provides resemblance, recognition and conveys issues of social significance. It is here, I find a voice that becomes an investigation into our society, our history and a relevance to the world today. Being a refugee, I wanted to sculpt a piece that represents freedom.
Site 4 Synapse on the Breeze by artist Michael Dunton, UT
Medium: Steel and Stainless Steel
Dimensions: 120” x 36” x 12”
My work, in general, is an exploration into the seen and unseen forces that shape our world and flow around us every day. Synapse on the Breeze is a musing of an idle daydream floating away on a gentle breeze. An imagining of thoughts, ideas and dreams as they emerge and drift away.
Site 5 Stars on Parade by artist John Banks, NV
Dimensions: 10’ x 12’ x 56”
My style of sculpture is based on focal points. The design gives the impression of an abstract composition until it is viewed from the focal point – then an illusion of a familiar image appears in a word, symbol, or illustration. This sculpture uses the five-point star in a series of three compositions. It shows the progression of stretching the image of a star in depth.
Site 6 Military Wing Bench by artist Victoria Patti, CO
Dimensions: 60” x 100” x 22”
The bench offers a comfortable spot to sit down, close your eyes and give honor to military personnel who are serving or have served in the armed forces of our country. The wings are a representation of military wings that are pinned on uniforms. Envision the wings behind you, lifting you up to a place where you can concentrate on the patriotic words attached to the badge between the wings.
