Niki Glen Studios - Broadway Project

We are creating some beautiful sculptural forms to enhance the roadway and blend in with the landscaping.

There are six proposed locations for the artworks. The first is a 9’ by 4’ sculptural wall with gorgeous low relief. The second is a totem with is a celebration of community and then as one travels down the pedestrian path one will see a sundial which depicts all the months of the year and showcases the activities that take place every year. We want people to notice and appreciate beauty and nature. There will be benches and totems depicting nature and edible plants of the desert. These plants can be grown in the yards of the neighborhood and also will be the actual plants included in the landscaping adjacent to the bike and pedestrian paths and roadway.
