This morning National Sculptors' Guild placed Jane DeDecker's bronze sculpture 'On the Count of Three' at the Seeley Drive roundabout in La Quinta, California. Further landscaping will follow.
Traversing a roundabout, we experience art for an instant. We drive away and the impression stays with us. The proposed design reflects on the setting and activities of this site. Focusing on Health, Vitality, Family and Community, each passing of the sculpture shall fuel and regenerate the viewer; with emphasis on positive interaction for families and friends that speaks to multiple generations with universal appeal. The sculpture depicting young parents in sync, holding hands through their child and enjoying the child’s joy of momentary flight has added features sculpted in the wax-phase specific to this area of LaQuinta, a picnic basket, a bouquet of California Poppies and a puppy. The gestural movement elegantly echoes the pace of the world we live in.
JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs.
