male figure of balzac sculpture  / public art. city of palm springs ca. installed 2009

 

 

Painted Steel.

 

Outdoor Minimal Abstract  Sculpture.

 

Public Art brings it to people.It exposes more prople  to Art  than private collections.

 

The sculpture was built in 1996 and installed on Palm Canyon Blvd. Palm Springs, CA in 2009.

 

Its on the corner Palm Canyon Blvd. and Andreas Road in heart of the  Palm Springs Downtown District.

 

Named Balzac after the sculpture by Rodin because of it's anthropomorphic resemblance in a geometric style.

 

Specially Thanks to the P.S. Art Counci. This a special to me because I live here.

 

I moved to Palm in 1994 having spent most of my life in varoious sections of Los Angeles.

 

Palm Springs is 1.5 hours drive to L.A. making commutes not a problem. But we are always glad to be back.

 

Having moved to Venice Beach, Ca in 1968 I learned early that low overhead was the secret to survive as a working sculptor.

 

Los Angeles eventually became so expensive it was move or get a job.

 

We chose to move to Palm Springs on a 2 day vacation with my wife when we saw the prices compaired to L.A.

 

We still have no neighbors to this day. Peace and quiet with desert animals.

 

I learned in Venice that nice places with low overhead eventually boom into Art Destinations..

 

It is normal for Artist to move where they can afford to work full time and Boutiques, Restaurants and Galleries are soon to follow.
