“Diamond Bloom” – Scottsdale, AZ

Scottsdale_Installation_11

Artist:  Curtis Pittman
Brief Description:  Delicately emerging from the landscape, Diamond Bloom serves as an icon marking the southern edge of Scottsdale’s arts district.  Reminiscent of a cactus flower, the sculpture’s radiant changing qualities of light, shadow, and color contribute to its dynamic botanical form.  Two upward sweeping arcs converge above creating a passageway to the formal entrance of the museum.  The brass panels, glass fins, and colored lights are strategically placed to produce a luminous colorplay both day and night, reflecting the sparkling energy of life in the west.
