Children have been picking dandelion flowers that have gone to seed, blowing and “making a wish” for centuries. It is that very concept of focusing thought, gathering energy and releasing it into the world which provides the inspiration for this sculpture. The shopping center this public art is located in has been a dream of the community for nearly 20 years, bringing a much needed grocery store and other amenities to this area. WISH celebrates this dream-come-true for the community with a sculpture made from marine-grade stainless steel and Cor-ten (weathering) steel. The piece includes a 7-foot long and a 10-foot long wall sculpture of flying-away dandelion seeds, and three 25-foot tall dandelion seeds in a nearby planter.
