"Origin"-Meridian City Hall: Dedication Celebration

Hope to see everyone there! It should be a fun time for all; I'll also be introducing a couple new sculptures upstairs in the Initial Point Gallery :)

So far, the feedback has been really positive: everyone loves the way the finished sculpture looks in City Hall. I'm starting on the alcove panel next--it will include info on the history & inspiration behind the design of "Origin," along with a list of sponsors & donors. We are also looking at the option of adding a brass cap in the floor right under-neath the plumb bob with the exact coordinates; at request of the mayor... Hopefully I can get that going, & get the alcove art finished up for the dedication!

Big thanks to Architectural Metalworks; we couldn't have pulled it off with out your help! Also thanks to Lex & Jeronimo at Boise IronWorks, & Brandon at Jag Rentals. And of course, the Meridian Arts Commission, Idaho Commission on the Arts, the City of Meridian, & everyone at City Hall :)
