Client: Clinton Iowa
Location: Clinton, IA, United States
Completion date: 2003
Artwork budget: $35,000
Creating and installing 8 over life size local wild life Superhero sculpture fountains along the downtown strip of Clinton Iowa.
To beautify the struggling downtown business area.. and note local river wildlife.. while giving people something to enjoy in while visiting.
Chris Bennett of Bennett Studio designed the limestone base and fountain works.. while I was responsible for figure designs, sculpting, mold making, wax casting and metal finishing the sculptures. Jeff Adams of inBronze Foundry applied ceramic refractory shell & bronze pour.. Great foundry to work with.
It was a lot of fun... and supplied me time and finances to be an at home Dad to my kids who were 1 and 2 at the time. Outside my normal classical figurative training.. but I love the way they turned out.. and I believe the people in the area feel the same.
