Artist: Tom Newport
Cedar Rapids, IA
Location: 211 N Public Rd., Mojos Plaza
Materials: Stainless Steel
Artists Statement My fabricated stainless steel sculptures are often outwardly abstract, but are closely linked to nature and reality. The energy and the vitality expressed in my compositions reflect a subtle inner strength and spirit that expands and interacts gracefully with space and the surrounding environment. My work is inspired by experience in floral design, jewelry design and a general observation of the world around me.
Following the installation of the sculptures, area poets and visual artists will be invited to participate in a juried art show, “See and Respond!” where artists create a piece inspired by one of the sculptures. There will be cash prizes awarded in multiple categories. Visit the See & Respond page for more information.
