Teach

Artist Website: www.nmbenembe.com

About the Sculpture: The idea of Teach began as a motion, a movement of crouching down that transforms into standing and reaching tall. The movement began as a grounded, ready position, and moved upward into a growth and a freedom. It had many working titles, none of which satisfied the artist. It was still unnamed when the artist was invited to present the sculpture at a Career Day event at a local middle school. Brimhall realized there that its name was Teach. Teachers give us the ability to stay grounded but fly, to be safe but be free and unlimited in our exploration, learning, and growth. That idea of being grounded but being ready and equipped to reach is what the movement, and the sculptural interpretation of that movement represent.

About the Sculpture: Silly Symphony is a playful piece inspired by a Mickey Mouse cartoon that shows Mickey’s band holding a concert outside. 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!

About the Sculpture: This sculpture is a depiction of the childlike approach to combining nature with imagination to create something new—like when a rose thorn is plucked from the stem and affixed to a nose! Is it a rose thorn or a nose horn? Thorns, Bees and Rhinos is covered with reproductions of children’s original drawings showing their version of bees and rhinos. The fresh, untainted artwork of these small kids, free of preconceived imagery, underlines the concept of youthful imagination. 52 young artists contributed to the creation of this piece.

About the Sculpture: Specter, meaning ghost, features the ghost of a cube, the artist’s favorite shape. As seen from different angles, the cube takes on various forms—at times it looks three-dimensional while seeming to disappear into a flat object at others. This mysterious piece features steel and stainless steel, contrasted against each other while combining together to create one structure.

5.ldartwalk-15Artist Website: www.dantoone.com

About the Sculpture: What originally began as a 4’ sculpture, Envisage features two different kinds of steel. The artist was inspired to increase the scale of the original piece and during the creation, each piece that was cut to make envisage was saved and repurposed into another sculpture by the artist entitled Austere. The contrasting rusted steel and shiny stainless steel work together to highlight the piece’s uniqueness.

About the Sculpture: A plant progressing through its growing season has many interesting stages of development. From seed and seedling to fruit, some stages catch our eye, like the flowering stage. Winter Hibiscus Leaf gives us a view into a beautiful stage of plant life, sometimes overlooked—the dying, dried stage. A necessary step to spring’s renewal, winter, with its rest period, produces beauty in a dried, curled up leaf.
