  21. 21. Rebar Group Dot Matrix • One hundred anodized aluminum "stalks" of various heights, each capped with a Bott's dot. • Integrate into all four sites designated in the RFP for this project. At one end, along the Rose White Park Fence, Dot Matrix begins with simple dots on the pavement along the edge of the sidewalk. As the visitor continues toward the White Street termination, the dots grow taller, appearing to extrude from the ground plane, growing and clumping in naturalistic formations. At the underpass the dot stalks grow taller and curve like vines, appearing to grow through the wall of the underpass. Finally, the piece culminates in tall, straight elements along the Stadium Bridge, which match the scale and intensity of the stadium, and the roar of the crowds within it.

  39. 39. Sheila Klein Four separate proposals – select one or smaller hybrids of combined elements. • Graphic sculpture on bridge light posts • Flattened tubular chandelier with graphic paint on underpass • “Rah Rah” cheerleader pyramids on both sides of bridge • “Annie’s Arbor” tree planters on both sides of bridge In my investigation of this site, I have entertained a series of directions for your consideration. Herein you will find two families of ideas with two options for each, making four distinct proposals with the added possibilities of some hybrids between the concepts. I believe the best project will be one where there is involvement with the city and stakeholders in the development of the design. Each of these ideas have many possible paths which would be determined through our dialogue. This is a major gateway into the city, and as such, deserves a special project to honor that prominent position. Project Description Overview

  57. 57. Volkan Alkanoglu Lady Ann • One hundred aluminum ”cones” in the shape of a 55’ wheel. • Each cone engraved with cultural text created by residents • Can be walked under and seen from a vehicle. Our inspiration is based on both a historic reference of Ann Arbor’s industry (the mill) and a contemporary reflection of mobility (the wheel). We are taking these observations as a symbol for unity, wholeness, and infinity. Without beginning or end, without sides or corners. This inspiration is then charged with the multiplicity, diversity and rich culture we have experienced in Ann Arbor during our research, site visit and experience with the local community. The extrusion of over 100 cones from the wheel of its of surface is an abstract representation of the dynamic, diverse, and rich historic qualities of Ann Arbor and its community. The cones are constantly reflecting on each other blending the memories of past with experiences of the future. Project Description Overview

  63. 63. Catherine Widgery "This project interests me because of the variety of sites to be treated and the challenge of finding ways for art to animate and integrate these different locations. I enjoy using existing structures and surfaces and weaving the art concept into these so that the viewer discovers something new each time they move through the space." Distinguishing Accomplishments • Winner of the Americans for the Arts Award as one of the outstanding public art works created in 2010 and 2002. • Featured on the covers of Sculpture, Landscape Architecture, Espace and World Sculpture News. • Over 30 major public works of art commissioned Artist’s Statement Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts

  75. 75. Catherine Widgery Arbor Winds • Ten etched panels of Pennsylvania Blue Stone granite on State Street underpass each 10’ high and 7’wide lit by LED lights. • Three etched glass windscreens at Rose White Park 5’ high and 74’ long lit by LED integrated lighting • 12 etched acrylic/aluminum banners on the bridge each 4’ x 6’. Three areas are engaged by the artwork. The first is the underpass of State Street below the Stadium Bridge. This is a gateway to the town so the two lines of iconic trees etched into stone panels on the underpass walls suggest a colonnade to greet visitors to Ann Arbor. The second area where artwork would be installed is The White Street termination on the north side of East Stadium Blvd. Along the stretch of sidewalk above the curving walkway of the new park area would be three sections of glass art each 24’ long and comprised of three panels. The third element in Arbor Winds is a series of eight banners on the bridge itself. These banners, attached to the existing lampposts by steel arms, will be anchored to 8 alternating lampposts on either side of the road hanging over the sidewalk. They appear to curl as if caught by the wind. Project Description Overview
