|Chris Weed’s “Portal” includes three large blue chairs and giant door, all made of steel.|
Wondering about that big crane out front of the FAC yesterday? We’re installing a new work on loan which may look familiar to some of you. This large-scale outdoor sculpture used to stand outside of the Pikes Peak Center, but now will be temporarily installed in the FAC sculpture garden. It is “Portal” by Chris Weed, a local artist who happens to live just a couple blocks away from the FAC.
Weed also sculpted the big spiky “spores” out front (which are also visible from the sidewalk if you walk by his house). He is represented by three galleries across three states — California, Colorado and New Mexico — and has exhibited internationally. You can see more of Weed’s work around Colorado Springs at the Plaza of the Rockies and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
