DISCUSSION WITH CATHARINE MAGEL

Catharine Magel talked with the Commission about her vision for the mosaic finish on the bird sculpture. She stated that she initially looked at the plaid as an abstract way to talk about community (neighborhoods, cross-streets), but that it may be too busy. She talked about the possibility of using a radiating color from the center, changing color/value. She also stated that images and other things change during the creative process.

 

Ms. Bradley talked about the possibility of using nature images as opposed to the city itself.

 

After discussion, it was decided that Ms. Magel will provide a white model, a sample mosaic board and a painted model.
