The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond, to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-728-6140.

With a background in architecture, I have been involved with public art as a kinetic sculptor for over forty years both in this country and abroad as the attached resume will attest. In 2012 I formed a partnership with my associate David Colbert as Prentice Colbert, Inc. My career has been devoted to meeting the requirements of the space, the schedule and the budget. Our hope is that the work will also engage the mind and lift the spirit.
In kinetic sculpture movement is everything. The changing patterns produced by the slightest currents of air are what we count on to repeatedly draw the eye of the viewer back to the work. The works are made of elements that are linked by a flexible wire web engineered to allow them to move individually and in concert. This synergistic web that enables the works to move can be seen as a metaphor for the structure of an interdisciplinary academic community. The action of the air moving over the individual elements causes the whole linked mass to move and change shape. The slow dance of the sculptures reveals the forces that act on the air in the building.
We take it as an article of faith that the air around us moves in ways that are organic, whimsical, and unpredictable. We therefore assume that if we were to abdicate the design to the wind, the work would take on these same qualities.
The engineer wants to minimize friction to make the air visible
The architect studies matters of scale and proportion
The sailor wants to know the strength and direction of the wind
The artist wants to understand its changing shape
Meanwhile the child wants to play
