Platform Art, Inc. invites you to a Sensory Salon and Public Art Party for an evening of libations, entertainment, and information on our Sensory Sculpture, as we reveal the final three project concepts that have been selected for further development. You'll also have the opportunity to meet our project partners, including the artists, Becky Ault and Mike Cunningham, plus the student designers, landscape architects, and more!
Students responded to the Platform Art Sensory Sculpture public art call-for-design competition with more than 20 constructed models representing one or more of the five senses. Several sculpture designs will be selected and presented to a panel of judges this fall for additional development.
It turns out that Lakeland’s best art party of the year isn’t at a gallery or even Artful Bowl, but the artists are just as talented – albeit a little shorter. Polk County’s K-12 student dancers, poets, and artists of all stripes put on an incredible show for this year’s PlatformKids.
If you joined us for this event, thank you. Tommy Simpson is an artist, woodworker, sculptor, furniture maker, painter and poet, a true original in the art world. Internationally recognized, he works in nearly every medium and it was an honor to spend the evening with him.
