Event Description

Smithsonian Craft Optimism - Colin Selig by Colin Selig Sculpture LLC
Colin Selig is a US sculptor distinguished for his sustainable outdoor seating. His benches have been honored with national and international awards including the 'Most Interesting Products Award' from the American Society of Landscape Architects and the ‘Exhibitor’s Choice Gold Award’ at the Smithsonian Craft Show. He was recently named by CODAworx as one of 2021 top 25 “Creative Revolutionaries” leading changes forward in the arts. Colin has been granted a series of design and utility patents for his method of repurposing scrap steel propane tanks, a process with a minimal carbon footprint which results in durable objects that contain 99% post-consumer reused content. His seating designs include contemporary riffs on furniture from Victorian and Mid Century eras while his biomorphic sculptures are whimsical and invite interaction from people of all ages. Colin’s eco-friendly work can be found in public settings across the US including streetscapes, parks and plazas, museums, healthcare facilities and retail properties. It is also in private collections including The Sam Rose Collection. Please watch this video to see more of the artist's work: Read more
