The sculpture that inspired all of the #U items in our store...
#U is a statement, in a Twitter/Texting vernacular, societies digital shorthand. A hashtag is used to search & find digital content. We want to discuss how it effects communication. With 2 characters we ask you to Search & Find You, in a big & bold way. Orange is a hat tip to the inaugural ArtPrize & it's logo - "where anyone can find a voice in the conversation about what is art and why it matters." We want to emphasize & encourage that vital part of ArtPrize. "Search & Find You" in Art, in the experience, in the discussion. Search & Find You in ArtPrize. The sculpture took on deeper meaning after our family lost a wonderful young man Nathaniel William Wylie to suicide just before Christmas. It is a heartfelt request to anyone feeling trapped...Search & Find You for a way to live one more day...every day. For light & peace, it is there. Search & Find You for the truth, the Truth is, You are needed. We hope to benefit Suicide Prevention with this Talisman.
#U will be showing in the Chelsea Sculpture Walk in Chelsea, Mi. It will be in front of the Chelsea State Bank on Main St. for a year!
