High Desert Kelp

High Desert Kelp is installed along Route 36 in downtown Lyons, Colorado, through the heARTS of Lyons  program.  The sculpture will be on view through the summer of 2025.

Update on Opus 1

The 1973 wood sculpture, Opus 1, received a new base from its owners in Germany, who passed along a new photo.

All Together Now

Painted aluminum, 4' x 4' x 8'

Installed from September, 2021 through September, 2023 at the St. Vrain Market in Lyons, Colorado as a juried selection for the heARTS of Lyons, An Art Collection All Over Town, with support from the Lyons Community Foundation and the Town of Lyons.

All Together Now invites exploration in the round as forms appear and change shape when viewed from different angles and through varied openings.

The Market's outdoor café seating provided an ideal vantage point as sunlight moved across the sculpture over the course of the day.
