This is a large tube steel sculpture. It is powder coated in the inaugural ArtPrize orange.
It is 2 pieces and measures 10' long x 8' tall x 5" deep. It has 3 steel base plates to make it free standing.
We created it for the amazing ArtPrize event in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The #U sculpture is currently installed in the Chelsea, Mi Sculpture Walk! It will be in front of the Chelsea State Bank downtown for a year! We really appreciate your sharing and tagging photos of you and the sculpture with #U#searchandfindu
Help us reach someone who is struggling, like, comment and share on your favorite social media channels over and over again! Thank you!!
#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 the Michigan Association for Suicide Prevention with this Talisman.
Expected release date is Jun 30th 2018
