Upcoming Projects:

Celestial by Ray King
Coming in October 2017, an integrated artwork created by artist Ray King entitled Celestial will be installed in the new Municipal Complex. Celestial is a sculpture made out of highly polished, lightweight, stainless steel spheres suspended from the ceiling of the Complex. The inspiration for this piece is the sun, air and water. The floating sculptures suggest reflective clouds, planets, silver jewelry and the hydrodynamic movement of bubbles rising through water. The spheres will reflect light and create shadow patterns and mirror the surrounding space. The reflective surface of the sphere will reflect the changing environment, including people as they pass through the space. Ray King is located out of Philadelphia. For more information on the artist and his work, please visit http://www.rayking.nu/.

Ascent by Jen Lewin
Coming in November 2017, the newest permanent artwork will be installed on the ArtWalk, located at NW 31st Ct. Ascent, created by artist Jen Lewin, is a ten foot diameter artwork created out of stainless steel, LED lights, heat censors and dichroic, semi-reflective pads. At night, the artwork glows in full interactive LED colors. The users movement through the sculpture will be transformed into glowing and swirling interactive light. During the day, Ascent will softly reflect its environment as the dichroic surface will appear to shift in color based on the viewer’s point of view, creating the appearance of a watery reflective mirage. Jen Lewin is based out of New York. For more information on her and her artwork, please visit http://jenlewinstudio.com/.
