    • 20,000+ square feet
Skateable-Art-South-Jordan-Utah-23Throwing all notions of conventional skatepark design out the window, we developed a vision for a mixed-use public space with eye-catching skateable sculptures artfully set along with a pair of winding pedestrian paths. Nestled in unassuming housing development, this unnamed park is home to over a dozen integrated skateable art pieces, such as the “Ribbon,” which was inspired by Park City’s 2002 Olympic ribbon sculpture.

 People in Transit 21"People in Transit" is a sculpture consisting of 10 Peter-Pan-style flying people on tall poles. Installed at the Daybreak Parkway Utah Transit Authority (UTA) light rail station, this sculpture is a celebration of those folks that use the train for transportation. The flying aspect of the people is a fun, whimsical twist on the fast-paced nature of transportation in the modern age.

The flyers come in three sizes, with the largest being on the shortest poles and the smallest being on the tallest poles. The flyers are made of steel and stainless steel and are mounted to the poles via low-friction bearings, allowing them to orient into the prevailing wind.

Everyone has, at one time or another, wondered what it would be like to fly. Or at the very least, wonder what having a set of wings would look like. This mural invites people to interact with it and see themselves as something other-worldly, and to share that image with our wingless peers online.

WallMuralEditHidden Zen
This art conveys that an immovable object can be manipulated with a small gesture. The image of a person ‘pulling back’ the brick to reveal a colorful zentangle design is intended to make one wonder if the brick is really brick at all or just an illusion hiding a zen-ful secret. This mural begs to be photographed and shared, with the viewer wondering, “how did you…?”


Piece Name: Lady in the Garden

  • By: Dennis Smith
  • Materials: Bronze - This sculpture was cast at Adonis Bronze in Alpine, Utah, and is of the highest quality
    the material the industry can provide.
  • Location: 4867 West Veeroma Way
  • Dimensions: Height 53” Width 33” Length 30”

Lady in the Garden FrontIt was originally commissioned by a vineyard in Napa Valley, California and the first casting is currently displayed at their entrance. The peaceful look on the woman’s face, the active gesture of planting or collecting flowers, I think all play well into the goal of what you’re trying to accomplish.

Piece Name: Colorful Connections

  • Artitst: Aelias McHam
  • Location: Tunnel under 114th street and Kestrel Ridge
  • Year Completed: 2021
Tunnel Mural

The bright, bold colors of this mural were selected by local artist Aelias McHam to imitate the vivid palette often seen in the majestic skies above Daybreak. The mountains that surround the area are featured inside the tunnel to give passersby a vibrant view from below ground. A Daybreak resident himself, McHam completed this mural in his signature graffiti style which features geometric shapes, and playfully abstract lines created using fluorescent spray paint.

“I decided to go with a design that was bright and vibrant. I arranged the colors to have the most contrast and added fluorescent spray-paint accents to kick things up,” said McHam, a  resident here in Daybreak. “I went with an abstract design of fun lines and geometric shapes to make the most people satisfied with the artwork.”

Colorful Bird utility box

Artist: Bill Louis
Artwork Title: In Flight

What looks simply like a bright and bold box wrap design is actually a tribute to Utah history. In-Flight, Utah artist Bill Louis created this bold design featuring the Utah state bird, a California Gull. Bill’s inspiration for the piece is derived from the history of the gulls being brought into the state to eat hordes of crickets invading farmers’ crops. The bold colors and sweeping imagery found on this wrap come from the artist’s background in street art and his use of geometric and abstract imagery. The design features the gull’s wings, transforming in movement, its motion-captured as it transitions in flight-ready to swoop in and grab a cricket. The floral design in the background represents the beauty of the farmers’ crops being saved by the birds.

Farmer utility box

Artist: Lynzie Little
Artwork Title: Daybreak Parodies

Passionate about utilizing public art to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, local Daybreak artist Lynzie Little developed this box wrap featuring parodies of famous paintings with local Daybreak touches incorporated. Look closely, and you’ll experience starry nights from the Daybreak docks, a tribute to some tasty local treats in American Gothic, Monet’s water lilies floating in Oquirrh Lake, the Mona Lisa ready to join in on some sledding-hill excitement, and Daybreak’s own Papa Wheelie popping a wheelie in some Warhol-like pop art. The artist’s work for this box wrap excels at putting a relatable and humorous spin on these classics for the Daybreak community to enjoy.

The Daybreak Arts Council did it again! We are excited to introduce/ re-introduce the newly redesigned Guitar 2.0 by Deveren Farley with an interactive spin dial.

Inspired by a community-wide love of music, one of Daybreak’s favorite pastimes is embodied in this big and bold 24-ft sculpture. Viewers are encouraged to interact with the piece—spin the center wheel and watch the balls roll through 360 ft of gravity-powered tracks. Artist Deveren Farley’s pieces can be found throughout Daybreak—he’s also the creator of Silly Symphony, which was added to Daybreak’s permanent public art collection in 2021, and he regularly has work featured in Daybreak’s Art Ave program.

Silly Symphony – Deveren Farley
Now part of Daybreak’s permanent collection!

Silly Symphony is a playful piece inspired by a Mickey Mouse cartoon that shows Mickey’s band performing in a concert outdoors. A tornado crashes the event and sweeps up everything and everyone in its path. In the cartoon and in the sculpture, you can see the whirling instruments and musical notes spinning through the air as they’re played by the band even as they are tossed around by the tornado. It’s massively silly!


ldartwalk-16 Dancing With a Dream – Elizabeth Carter
This playful fairy, whirling away on a wind-blown dandelion, captures a moment of magic that invokes a sense of whimsy and joy. This sculpture was originally featured in Daybreak’s Art Ave program and was purchased for the permanent collection in 2021. The talented artist, and local Daybreak resident, Elizabeth Cater, completed this piece in her signature fairy-form using 25 lbs of stainless-steel wire. In addition to the Art Ave program and Daybreak’s permanent public art collection, Carter’s work was also featured in Daybreak’s 2021 Fizz Fest gallery show.
