Savannah Gardens Project - in progress



The commissioned work in progress at MeadowLark Studio.  All of the components utilized in creating this multi-unit artwork are re-purposed from discarded materials.

Top image: three industrial fan blades positioned and temporarily held aloft; the cast aluminum letters attached to the surface of each are from a demolished school previously located in the area; the cardboard cut outs represent forms that have been cut from chalkboards discarded from the same school as the letters.

Bottom image: a mosaic circle measuring 7' in diameter created from various ceramic tiles fabricated in the studio and left over as extras from many years of previous public art projects.

Savannah Gardens Public Art Commission

This is the first contemporary public art work commissioned by the city of Savannah. After numerous community input sessions and lengthy review by various municipal agencies and individuals, the City Council unanimously approved the creation of this mixed media, abstract work for permanent placement in a newly developed residential community - Savanna Gardens.
