The first public artwork in the Bentonville Arts District, The Three Feathers was commissioned by the developers of 401 SW A Street in Bentonville, AR. As the site was being developed I was asked to propose a work that would utilize a 60-foot unused utility pole on the NW corner of the property. The Three Feathers was constructed by shaping three large aluminum panels like half feathers, and attaching them near the top of the pole, creating the image of a large arrow embedded in the ground. The feathers were designed to incorporate neon, and the large red flame-like feather profiles glow after dark, resembling a torch.
