I've already completed the entry form :D Thanks Dad, I would have never saw this unless you said something. I wonder if this has something to do with that penny I found heads up today...?

If I cook up some work maybe UP - GR will be the first to see it? :dontknow:

Rizzo, would love to see what you've got going for this

proposal. Already know what I'll submit as well.

Dadof, thanks for the info link - hope you submit some

of your wonderful photography along with many others

here who continually supply the rest of us with

images of our town.

hey Dad, maybe we can combine a few of my renderings with some of your nice photos to have some sort of collage?

I nice monumental bronze or stainless steel sculpture in front of the building would be nice.

Something modern and abstract that calls attention to the city's importance to contemporary sculpture.

A sculpture would be cool, but I would favor something more traditional.

Hey GRCentro, this definitely sounds like something up your alley... :D

Are you working on something yet maybe?

So cool! 3 internationally known sculptors will present their proposals Friday for the sculpture that will grace the front plaza of the new ITP station. They are looking to commission $470,000 for this new sculpture.

Art in Transit for more information :thumbsup:

There are still areas in and around the Station where they will be putting artwork, so don't give up Rizzo. I might see if they can hang some of my photography in the bathrooms next to the "Johnny Advertising" stuff :rofl:

All three are very interesting, and are proposed to be about 30' tall. I can't find any online pictures, but for those of you who have seen them, which is your favorite?

I like Dennis Oppenheim's "Journey Home", although I can understand concerns about skateboarders :lol:

It looks very similar to THIS.

You can see them in today's GR Press page A3-4, or B4 in Friday's paper.

BTW Greedo, Richard Hunt's piece is very much like the one you linked to.

I prefer Oppenheim's too. Hunt's proposal is interesting, but not one of his better pieces. It seems too constrained. Same with Perlman, who actually does a series of circular works that are much more compelling.

Since Rapid Growth did such a great update on the new flouride sculpture, maybe they could dig into the status of this project? :whistling:

Be glad to, Dad. If it's newsworthy, watch for it in the publication. :whistling: If it's not newsworthy, I'll post the update here just so everyone is informed. :thumbsup:

Glad to hear folks enjoyed Andy's article on the flouride commemorative sculpture. He did a great job, and Brian got some awesome photos, don'cha think?
