Sculptures at Electra C. Doren Open House January 3rd

Duncarrick Mansion - hand cut paper by Darren Kall

My sculptures are complete and will be installed this week! If you're in the Dayton Ohio area on January 3rd come see them as part of the Electra C. Doren library's new reading terrace.

On January 3rd the Electra C. Doren Library will celebrate their reopening after 10 months of renovation with an Open House for the public from 11:00am to 6:00pm. I will be there starting at 11:00am to show the sculptures. There is a children's program at 11:30am and 2:30 pm. A teen program at 4:00pm. And special guests and prizes during the day. The branch has new features such as a bright new children's area, dedicated spaces for adults and teens, a community room, enhanced technology, and a new reading terrace featuring my six aluminum sculptures of Old North Dayton landmarks. Hope to see you there.

Plus, because the sculptures are outside, the library is planning a special unveiling just for the sculptures sometime in the spring when it is warm enough to actually sit outside and enjoy the reading terrace.

I'm not posting pictures of the sculptures until after the open house but the attached image is one of the final artwork designs that the six metal sculptures were made from. The final artwork designs, like this one of the Duncarrick Mansion, were hand cut from black paper.

I'm way behind in writing posts. I was busy finishing the sculptures... but I'll be catching up now on lots of insights and stories.
