.ASIAN AMERICAN RESOURCE CENTER (AARC)
Sunyong & Philippe have been chosen as a team for an Art in Public Places project for the AARC. They have been working on an outdoor sculpture. Sunyong is creating a 12' diameter floor mosaic. Philippe is carving seven vertical "petals," standing 9' tall, and a low fountain for this project. AARC is currently under construction, located on Cameron Road, just north of HWY 183. It is scheduled to open in spring of 2013.
Here are some photos of the work in progress.
