This project is to be completed after finishing Learning Units 1 through 5
Throughout history artists have created public sculpture for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public. Sometimes these sculptures memorialize people or events; sometimes they are purely aesthetic.
They are usually found in parks, gardens, subway stops or in public squares.
Public sculptures are part of a larger art form commonly referred to as Public Art - works of art planned and executed with the specific intention of being sited or staged in public view.
Many times such public art is collaborative or communal in nature. Monuments, memorials and civic statuary are perhaps the oldest and most obvious form of officially sanctioned public art. Sculpture intended as public art is often constructed of durable, easily cared-for material, to avoid the worst effects of the elements and vandalism; however, many works are intended to have only a temporary existence and are made of more ephemeral materials.
Permanent works are sometimes integrated with architecture and landscaping in the creation or renovation of buildings and sites
Objective: The objective of this project is to model a public sculpture of your own design. The public sculpture should memorialize a particular person, place or event OR express a particular concept, idea or emotion.
Requirements: The modeled sculpture must contain multiple materials and/or multiple textures. Your sculpture may be animated, but it is not required.
Submit. Submit three .png images of your sculpture taken from various angles or distances. The idea is to show off your sculpture and its detail. Also submit your .blend file. Make sure any texture files are "packed" with the .blend file. If your sculpture contains an animation, submit the animation in .mov (QuickTime) format.
