Truth & Beauty: A Breathtaking Modern Sculpture


Truth & Beauty captures a moment of radical self-acceptance, the essence of a woman when she is safe to express herself fully.

About this project

Truth & Beauty will be an unabashedly breathtaking modern sculpture in structure and balance. Standing on her tiptoes, arms outstretched and head thrown back, Truth & Beauty expresses a moment of radical self-acceptance and love, the essence of a woman when she is safe and welcome to express herself fully. Conveying this notion has been the focus of my work as a sculptor for the past 25 years. My name is Marco Cochrane, and I am fully committed to breaking the pattern in which men (and women alike) often appear blind to the true, magnificent nature of women. My models and I collaborate to capture a moment in which they are truly expressing themselves.

Standing 55 feet tall and weighing 7,000 pounds, Truth & Beauty will be constructed using:

• 25,000 feet of steel rod and pipe;

• 6,500 steel ball connection points;

• 1,500 square feet of stainless steel mesh; and

• 55,000 single welds.

One thousand individual multi-colored LED lights will be distributed throughout her body. These lights will be controlled by a custom iPad application to create a spectacular light show that will enhance and expand the visual experience. Please follow our build on Facebook:

Request for Qualifications & Proposals
Traffic Signal Box Painting
Fallon, Nevada

Deadline for Submission: Materials Must Be Received
by 5:00 PM May 2, 2011 (late applications will not be considered).

Eligibility: Open to professional artists in the western United States.
Project: This is a project of the City of Fallon in cooperation with the Churchill Arts Council, which seeks to provide visual enhancement to the City’s traffic signal boxes. We seek to provide improvements to the aesthetics of the City of Fallon—transforming mundane infrastructural elements into appropriate public artworks that enhance and celebrate the local environment.
The project will involve painting two-dimensional renderings on up to ten (10) traffic signal utility boxes at a fee of up to $1,000 per utility box.
The artist(s) selected for this project will work closely with agencies of the City of Fallon and the Selection Committee to design and paint utility boxes in the City of Fallon. Goals of the project include: increasing public awareness of art all around us; broadening viewers’ perspectives of public spaces within the City; and fostering a sense of place in and around the Community.
Preference will be given to designs that emphasize color and form, use the illusion of three-dimensional space, are aesthetically pleasing and relate well to the site(s) in which they will implemented. Black and dark colors are discouraged due to the risk of overheating the signal boxes. Materials, colors used and visual content are subject to the approval of both the Selection Committee and the City of Fallon
Criteria: Artists should have previous experience creating art for public places and will be required to work collaboratively with the Committee and agencies of the City of Fallon as noted above.

Metal Art by Molly Brown, Sacramento CA

“Mixed Messages”
I am a modern contemporary artist with many new creative and innovative ideas. I have always been drawn to the creation of art and began designing at a young age. Throughout college, I started out as an apprentice to an interior designer. Paint chips and fabrics were my world. Midway through school I was drawn to graphic design. I received a degree in Graphic Design and went on to start my own business ( creating business identity systems. My true passion in life is creating art and I continue to take classes to enhance my skills. As a painter, I really enjoy bold colors with abstract/geometric shapes. Some of these paintings are non-objective and come alive with color and shape.
By experimenting with new mediums, my artwork has evolved to include: clay, photography, digital art, and metal sculptures. Now I find that mixing mediums (collaging) is irresistible. Mixing steel, with stainless steel, and copper, or digital art with paintings and photography creates opportunities for endless design possibilities.
My clay and metal sculptures are usually abstract with a whimsical twist. I especially love arts that require my hands getting dirty because I enjoy bonding with the materials, and want that joy to pass through the artwork to my viewers.
Art creates a healthy atmosphere in my life and balances the hectic emotions of every day living.
