"Shelf Life" - Downtown Colorado Springs Public Art
One of 13 artists chosen to create artwork that is going to be printed to vinyl and wrapped around various electric light switch boxes in the downtown Colorado Springs, Colorado area. This box will be located on the Northeast corner of the Vermillo and Tejon Street intersection in front of the Pioneer Museum.
Finished size is 24 inches deep by 33 inches wide by 58 inches tall.
Inspiration was the region's diverse history and culture depicted through book titles and knick-knack objects. Tribute is paid to over 150 popular and/or classic books, movies, and music albums throughout the years, and not just in relationship to the area. Titles were collected from many lists from friends and family as dedications to each of the contributors.
Our friendships and relationships to family are very much like books. Our content, titles and substance may be similar in look and sound, but be not mistaken, each is it's own piece, it's own story. Some unjust and some are delightful. This entire piece is a reflection of history and people, both alive and gone, that have made a difference in my life, including this community to which I have only been a resident for six short years.
