2018 Silverdale limestone
Another in the series of “Bench People”, I’ve created two bright looking kids—a boy (4′ x 4′ x 4′) seated next to a girl (4-1/2′ x 4′ x 4′). They appear to be looking to the school across the street and beyond. The figures provide seating opportunities for kids and adults alike, two stacks of books (18” x 36” x 24”) serve as benches. The setting is in the pathway of a naturally landscaped park that contains prairie grasses, flowers and trees. This installation is interactive, functional and inviting as a community ‘meeting place’.
