"Children at Play" Sculpture Walk
This public art project is displayed in the Guadalupe River Parkway in downtown San Jose, CA. I was on an artist team of two responsible for the design, sculpting, metal work, and installation of 19 life-sized cast aluminum figures throughout the parkway. The installations represent a wide variety of activities that children do while playing, ranging from a site-specific group of figures is playing hide and seek, to playing eye spy over the Guadalupe River, to two children playing with toy planes noticing the actual air traffic overhead from San Jose International Airport.
In 2012, the initial five figures were commissioned by the Downtown Rotary Club of the City of San Jose, and and bridged a connection between them, San Jose State University, the Guadalupe River Parkway Conservancy, CreaTV of San Jose, and the City of San Jose Public Arts Commission.
The second round of the project began in 2016 with a substantial gift from the San Jose Water Company, and added 14 additional figures throughout a mile and a quarter along the Guadalupe River.
