I had a client for my day job who asked if I could design a replica schoolhouse that would look like its 100 years old to house a sculpture by an amazing artist (who needs to remain anonymousl for the time being). I said yes.
I collaborated with a friend in our office who is also a contractor, Max Anthon with JXM Design & Associates, and this is where we ended up. He has two more weeks to go but is doing an AWESOME job.
Can't wait to see this space filled with a sculpture made from woven willows. It will be beautiful. Oh, and I was interviewed on site today for a documentary they are filming of the process. The owner's rep really likes my art and asked me to talk about how the concepts I explore with my pieces helped in designing this project. So that was amazing. This schoolhouse is for the Tippet Rise Art Center located near Fishtail, MT.
