The Space Whale is now temporarily installed in downtown Reno at City Plaza until Summer 2018. Install was a long process but our crew worked hard and stayed positive. We're so overjoyed that we were able to bring our art to the city we love most.
Midtown Reno's premier ice cream shop, Simple, is getting a new sculpture! Flyn will be a four foot Sierra Nevada Yellow Legged Frog made of steel, plants and glass. Flyn will debut at Reno Sculpture Fest 2017 and afterward it will be permanently installed in front of the ice cream shop on S. Virginia in Midtown.
Unfortunately, we were not awarded a Reno Sculpture Fest 2016 grant for Corvid Cradle but we still hope to build the project at some point this year. We're pursuing other avenues to help fund Corvid Cradle so Sprocket & Team Bird Brain can make this magical 10ft tall crow family. The Snow Flake sculpture will be featured Reno Sculpture Fest 2016.
We've submitted our grant proposal for Reno Sculpture Fest 2016. Team Bird Brain is really excited. Our plan is Corvid Cradle, two 7ft tall crows towering over their 6ft x 3ft nest. Our intent is to have people climb into the nest where we will have "egg" pillows.
We're currently looking for puppeteers or a children's theater to create a live show from within the nest intermittently throughout the festival.
