Media Week/Month in The Park

Now that the sculpture is installed, media week/month begins.   Here are a few pieces of recent coverage as well as some personal Facebook live videos from both the artist and the hosts.  Media week/Month continues. The sculpture is not only an incredible piece of art to look at; but it is also an educational tool that encourages literacy and with the artists help the art supports the education of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.  You will soon see more segments.

She uses the same mix of art and tech as in her book 3D Technology In Fine Art and Craft: Exploring 3D Printing, Scanning, Sculpting and Millingand she is not done. Wait until you see what else is down this rabbit hole.
