A Bio Scenic Travel Machine to land at Silverwood Park, St. Anthony, Minnesota in September!
Silverwood Park has selected my proposal for the 2016 call for outdoor sculpture. Thank you to the panel – sculptor Amy Toscani, Alyssa Baguss/Arts Programming Coordinator, Eileen Cohen/Park Art Educator and Exhibitions Coordinator and additional park District staff.
The Bio Scenic Machine will offer a kaliedoscope optical instrument to discover and explore the ecology and environment of Silverwood Park – mirrored reflections of plants, microscopic images of organisms, and other biological specimens – through the seasons.
The Travel Machine is here to research and contain a collection and record of life on earth – the natural world of Silverwood Park – and share it with visitors of the park and “unspecified” recipients.
