My Mighty Midland Mantis sculpture is on display in downtown Midland until mid September. The Mantis is located on the corner of West Main and Gordon…across the street from the H Hotel. He’s big, he’s bright and pretty photogenic. As one of the participating artists I was invited to Dow Diamond to watch a Loon’s baseball game in the Chemical Bank suite…good food and good company.
Completed a 5 ½ foot tall praying mantis sculpture for the 2013 Summer Sculpture Series Downtown Midland.
The big guy will be delivered this week and all things considered it was a very fun project.
The “Mighty Midland Mantis” was constructed from ½ inch pieces of plywood that were designed to fit together using minimum hardware.
The project was very much like assembling a large wood puzzle.
The sculpture will be displayed in the downtown are of the city during June, July, August and September.
