Dancing Aspen

Reven Swanson, Colorado

Medium: Powder Coated Steel

Dimensions: 14’ x 10’ x 10’

Cost: $18,000

Growing up in a rural Colorado setting, Reven built forts in ditches,swung on the backs of wild horses and chased lizards with her sister, Channing. It was a childhood experience that ran closely with the rhythms of the natural world. In an expression of our High Plains playground, Dancing Aspens reminds us of peering through a colorful canopy. The swaying kinetic motion invites us to watch and observe the invisible wind currents.

Dominion

Jeff Best, Michigan

Medium: Steel

Dimensions: 66” x 45” x 90”

Cost: $18,000

Dominion represents the comeback of the almost extinct bison herd in the 19th century.  The efforts of conservationists, scientists, ranchers, and the general public vaulted their momentum for the comeback.  Dominion is made of barbed-wire and scrap metal.  He’s big, bold, and beautiful just like they are out on the prairie – that is their dominion.

Sun Shadow Moon Light

Carl and Sean Yarbrough, Colorado

Medium: Steel, Acrylic/Enamel Paint

Dimensions: 85” x 36” x 64”

Cost: $10,000

This is the first collaborative outdoor sculpture by Carl and his son Sean.  It pays homage to heavenly cycles (day and night, full moons and new moons) that bring balance and harmony to earth.  As a viewer reads time, they are pulled in by the fiery sun at the center, just like the planets in our heliocentric galaxy.  Seven moon phases are depicted as well as a Milky Way scenery with the twelve-star constellations.
