Key to the Town: Green Box Arts Festival

keytotownKey to the Town: Green Box Arts Festival

It’s getting to be that time of year for the Green Box Arts Festival held in Green Mountain Falls, Colorado.

In 2012, I was asked to create keys to the city of Green Mountain Falls, Colorado, to be presented to honored artists at the Green Box Arts Festival. Wildfires shut down the festival last year, but this year all systems are go. Christian Keesee, founder and promoter of the event, talks about this year’s festival in the Denver Post.

I worked with artist Holly Troy to design the keys and we created this unique art piece. The keys are cast in bronze and then are hand-hammered and highly polished, giving each key a unique surface texture. They come with a bronze chain and a medallion naming the recipient of the key and the year. The keys are approximately nine inches long by three inches wide.

This was an amazing project, and it is really exciting that my work will be used over the next several years.

    This is a project I worked in collaboration with Matagi Sorensen. I designed the key and helped polish and hammer the final product. They turned out beautifully, and I learned A LOT about metals.
