It was an exciting April 1 as we installed On This Ground at Nashville’s dramatic new Music City Center. The 15 foot wide suspended sculpture has been in the works since last summer, drawing inspiration from the construction process itself. Metal objects salvaged from the site were used to create various rust imprints, while images abstracted from aerial photography were also layered into the work. Aerial images of the building’s foundation taken in May 2010, just after Nashville was flooded, are unexpectedly beautiful……as is a dreamy image of structural scaffolding.
We’ll be excited to see the many acquired and commissioned artworks forming Music City Center’s collection when the doors open in May!
