HCC is the temporary home to Affinity 5, one of a dozen sculptures on display throughout the county as part of the Howard County Arts Council's year-long exhibit, ARTsites 2019. Now in its eighth year, ARTsites provides public art within the community. Howard Community College has participated in the ARTsites program since inception. Affinity 5 joins three permanently-installed ARTsites sculptures on campus. At six feet tall, the piece appears to change shape when viewed from different angles and will be located at the north entrance to the college's Science, Engineering, and Technology building through July 2020.
I gain inspiration from Da Vinci, Euclid and the great scientists who blurred the distinction between art, math, and science. Metallurgy and physics guide my material and design choices as I seek to communicate messages about strength, sustainability, and risk.
