Art for Awhile Sculpture Program


Art for Awhile

Art for Awhile

is an exciting art on loan program created by the Broomfield Public Art Committee (PAC) and sponsored by the City and County of Broomfield. Participating artists are chosen by the PAC to display their art and offer it for sale for one year. The program affords the artist increased public exposure and the opportunity to sell their work.

Art is displayed in three locations: 1STBANK Center, North Metro Fire District Headquarters, and the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library. Click here for a map.

Plenum Orb

Permanent Collection, 2016

"Plenum Orb is created from familiar stainless steel items re-assembled in a most unusual way. In the reflective sphere you can see mixing bowls, pitchers, tea pots, hub caps, pots and pans, water bottles, dog bowls and coffee urns. In total, the Orb contains over 150 pounds of recycled material that has been re-purposed into a completely new form.

Like the forces that hold electrons in orbit within an atom, the artist created the effect of a cosmic magnet pulling the objects together to form a perfect sphere." ~Donald Gialanella

Rift

"Rift" was inspired by the geologic process of plate tectonics. A rift is created along a fault line and in this particular sculpture a thrust fault is represented by one half being pushed upward over the other. The texture of the piece was inspired by a basalt bomb. Material is spun off as the bomb spins through the air after being ejected as liquid magma from an eruption leaving concentric rings as it cools. The polished surfaces are the core revealed as cross section. The materials I used to make this piece are bronze and stainless steel which are well know for their strength and durability. ~Ted Schaal

High Flight

The inspiration for High Flight came from dreams and memories of architectural forms, columns and prairie flowers. We have an extensive metal shop in conjunction with the glass studio that allows me to build and grow with my sculptural ideas.
My training as an engineer and my career as an artist allowed me to design and build our own furnaces, lehrs, benches, glory holes and sculptural stands. One box shape led to another and then putting a rectangle on end was perfect. The cobalt blue glass platters accentuate the stainless steel and cause the viewer to look up and enjoy the height and the freedom of space. ~Rollin Karg

The Jester

Art for Awhile Program

My work is often abstract and sometimes geometrically based. Themes are varied. Wit is important. I believe that art has teeth, and can bite. It should be provocative. However, the work must also beguile, since provocation without beauty or charm is in the end hollow. I value craftsmanship, so I take pleasure in doing my own labor. I work mostly with steel, although I use other media, such as wood, as well. Techniques include welding, forging, casting, and carving. ~Joe Forrest Sackett

Into the Mix 


Sue Quinlan
Art for Awhile Program

In the Mix symbolizes the connection of humanity and the cycle of life and time. Circles surround us: we have the moon, the sun, planets and stars. This circle with many faces communicates a concept of an all-inclusive, cosmic harmony. It also illuminates the cycle we all share, including our joys and struggles with ubiquitous events like birth, death and human relationships. The pillar itself represents a vessel, or womb, that carries humanity and it's eternal cycle. ~Sue Quinlan

Good music starts your toe tapping. Great music encircles your body and stops you from anything but dancing in your kitchen, your garden, or your dreams. You whirl, engulfed in space and time, feeling the joy and passion of your very personal Spiral Dance. ~Harold Linke

Homecoming

Art for Awhile Program

Homecoming explores the relationship between elders and their students. The sculpture consists of two younger stainless steel Sandhill cranes flying in formation behind an elder crane. The compassion and humility required of eldership are represented by the elder crane leading but flying lower than the students, patiently passing along its knowledge. The younger cranes have received the teaching and are now turning away to start their own journey while the elder, who has completed its work, is beginning to descend and give up its role as teacher, thus beginning a return home. 12' long X 10' wide X 16' high. Stainless steel, mild steel. ~Tiimo Mang
