Sunday Sculpture Series

Sentinel in the snow. Photo by CA Crandall.

Sentinel, by Colorado artist Michael Hibner, is a 4' tall, by 4' wide composition of shapes.  Made of steel, this sculpture weighs 250 pounds.  His idea is to create a dynamic sculpture of form while exploring shapes, proportions, balance and scale.  I love the hard metal, the round of the circle, the openness at the top.  It would be a lovely garden focus. 

If you would like to see it in person, the sculpture sits on the NE corner of Public Road and Simpson Street.  You can take the whole tour of the sculptures before they are removed at the end of this month.  There are 12 that sit along Public Road in Old Town Lafayette, from Baseline Rd. to Kimbark St.

Ariel Dance
Hibner is a return artist.  His piece, Ariel Dance, was in the 2009-2010 Art on the Street Art Walk.

At the end of this month, Sentinel and the other 11 sculptures that are currently part of Lafayette's Art on the Street Art Walk will be replaced with 16 new sculptures on loan.  I will continue to profile each sculpture as part of my (sometimes) Sunday Series.
If you love one of the current pieces, they are all for sale.  Please contact the Lafayette Public Art Committee for purchase information.
