Description of Work:
The work consists of over three hundred steel silhouettes powder coated white steel to compose two figures, an adult and child, moving hand-in-hand toward the entrance of the Minoru Centre for Active Living. The overall measurements of the piece is 18' tall x 15' long x 7' deep. The figures are two separate pieces bolted to concrete footings, attached together with stainless hardware at the hands and is lit with four separate intelligent LED architectural lights in each foot.
From a distance, you can see a larger-than-life adult and child walking hand in hand up to the entrance of the Minoru Centre for Active Living. As you get closer you see a swimmer, a tree, a group of walkers, a heron, a dancer, and hundreds of other shapes that compose the two immense figures. But one thing that may not be that apparent is that this public piece of art is not only a symbol of the community, it is the community.
