The National Sculptors 'Guild’s board of directors nominated Joe Norman to move up from Affiliate to Associate within our organization. This passed with over two-thirds support by the current Fellows.
We have had amazing success from the start with Joe, placing public art in Texas, Georgia and California. The latest project was a 12-ft tall sculpture Homeward/Monarch for the City of Downey, CA. We have really enjoyed working with Joe, he always brings a creative twist to a call for art, and always with a smile.
With a background in engineering, design consulting and product design plus a degree from Stanford and a bit of Middle School teaching in the mix, Joe Norman approaches art from a different perspective than most artists, and that’s the focus of the majority of his sculptures - the viewer’s perspective. How you stand in the environment of the sculpture, dictates what you see. Adjust to another side, you see something else. This can be a girl who transforms into a monarch butterfly, or words of opposing meaning living in the same space like ‘peace’ and ‘chaos’. We hope you get the chance to interact with his art, it can change ones perspective on their place in nature.
“My intent is to make art that contributes to a wider conversation about justice and care and our impact on the world. I hope it helps people think and be happy; I hope it helps people be important to each other." - Joe Norman

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. click here for a list of our over 500 large-scale placements.
