THREE SHADES OF GREEN will have its official unveiling on September 10 th at 6:00 – 7:30 pm at The University of Tennessee – Chattanooga.  This commission sculpture came about with the urging and support of my dear patron, Ruth Holmberg and the University.

                                    If you are in town come on by for the celebration.

My sculpture concept for this project is based on our contemporary environmental concerns.  The sculpture presents three figures setting on recycled turbine blades in various shades of green.  Each figure represents the students of UTC and reminds them that they will and do hold the answers to today's problems and the future belongs to them.  The sculpture will be fabricated of aluminum and structural fiberglass, with some stainless steel.  There will be three pieces, each of which will be about 15 feet high.  Each plinth will be mounted on a concrete foundation at a mixture of heights.
