In the Public Art World you need to enter many calls, 100’s each year in fact to get selected for a semi-finalist presentation. So here I’m sharing one I did not get. I’m confident that this concept will be chosen in some form in a different community. But I did make it smaller for a sculptural rental program in Longmont. The idea is based on a Hug. My dad was known for his great hugs so this is in honor of him. I was able to take a photo of mom hugging the sculpture, the closest to my father mom can get since his passing.
