Mantis On Display

July 8th, 2013

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.

Mighty Midland Mantis

May 22nd, 2013

 

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.
