Artist: Lisa Fedon
Installed: 1999 – 2000
Materials: Bronze plate, perforated plate, and rod anchored into a brick wall, finished with tortoise-shell patina
On permanent display at Central Library.
The sculpture was fabricated of bronze (plate, perforated plate, and rod). The finish is dark tortoise shell patina. All of the work was completed at Ms. Fedon’s studio in Pennsylvania and then transported to Arlington. The sections are anchored into the brick walls.
The artist, Lisa Fedon of Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, was chosen through a competitive process by a jury of community representatives, local artists, and staff from the Library and the Public Art section of the Arlington County Cultural Affairs Division.
In her design, Ms. Fedon combined images taken by local high school photography students with her own photographic record of “life in Arlington.” The sculpture is funded by monies raised raised in the Campaign for Excellence, by the Friends of the Arlington Public Library, and by other contributions.
