LINEMEN project

Electric Linemen are the first of first-responders in natural and accidental disasters. We made it our challenge to interpret this message, increase public awareness and honor Linemen for their work.  Tribute to Linemen, at Lakeland Electric HQ, Lake Mirror. Unveiled June 29, 2018.

The State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs loved our proposal to involve students in the design process, and an opportunity to work with a professional artist to realize a permanent public art installation.

ORANGE STREET bridge

The Orange Street Bridge serves as a pedestrian walkway from the performing arts center into downtown Lakeland and the Lake Mirror Promenade. Ceramic Artist, Beatte Marston, designed and created colorful ceramic tiles depicting the agricultural history and public landmarks of Lakeland for the north railing of the Orange Street Bridge. Ceramic installation on the south railing of the bridge, designed by Vincent Sansone, tells the fantastic tale of the travels of the hare and other creatures of the garden.
