the project

Our community project is an art installation called “Timberwolf “.  This installation has been officially approved through Parks Public Arts.  The purpose of this 8ft dog head made of typically used and discarded construction materials is to show that these materials which have become so abundant through gentrification fueled renovations can be repurposed into beautiful and practical pieces of art instead of sent straight to the landfill. The sculpture will assimilate with its surroundings with the camouflage of climbing ivy and other horticultural arrangements. The location will be amidst the low-traffic plot on the west end of the dog park since dogs are a huge part of the Maria Hernandez park usage.

the steps

Once the cash is in hand these are the following steps in chronological order:

  • Produce architectural renderings
  • Purchase organic material   
  • Schedule installation with Parks
  • Hire assistant carpenter
  • Purchase remaining inorganic materials

why we're doing it

This sculpture is a metaphor of how waste can be repurposed into a part of the culture that produces it. It plays into the importance of resourcefulness, breathing use back into what is considered to be “used-up”. Not only will it continue the beautification of the park it will provide that much-needed dialogue regarding waste.
