One of my public art project designs was up for community vote in the city of Broomfield. And now it will be installed in October.
This is a digital drawing intended to be reproduced on the 13.5x6 feet traffic box in the city of Broomfield, CO. They allocate a portion of their budget for the public art to continually beautify the community with their public art collection of the artwork from Colorado professional artists as well as young children artists.
This design is inspired by the sunflower fields in Colorado, but it’s also a nod to my Ukrainian heritage. Sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine. I recently read that sunflowers always turn towards the light, but on a cloudy days when there is no sunlight, they find another sunflower and turn towards each other to share the energy. The birds in this artwork symbolize peace and hope.
This work is intentionally designed with each panel being it’s own composition without light-box corners cutting important elements of the image.
