The National Sculptors' Guild has installed Affiliate Jack Hill's "On a Roll" in Downey, California. We're thrilled with this playful public art placement, appropriately placed adjacent to the Hall of Fame Market and Deli. We hope you find it a'peeling'.
This installation is part of a series of Public Art placements that the City has commissioned from the National Sculptors' Guild to enhance Downey Avenue.
Special thanks to NSG Fellow Clay Enoch, Capitol Crane and the City of Downey for the installation help.

The National Sculptors' Guild is preparing to install Affiliate Jack Hill's "On a Roll". This installation is part of a series of Public Art placements that the City has commissioned from the National Sculptors' Guild to enhance Downey Avenue.
The project has been delayed due to the pandemic, we're hoping to install in the next month or so. Until then - take in this foundry shot of a vibrant 7-foot tall bronze banana on roller skates!

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.
