New found-object sculptures sit in the windows of the building at Main Street and Waldon Road, courtesy of Clarkston Cultural Arts Council members.
“What you’re seeing within these windows are the result of a participatory exercise members embarked upon on a sultry day in early September,” said Denyse Loveless Couture, creative director for the council. “After months of gathering random objects from people and places, we came together, and were asked to peruse the objects, and find pieces that interested us, without regard to color. We sought objects that were appealing and interesting in form and texture.”
The building is owned by Union Joints, which gave the artists permission to display their work.
“They were very gracious,” Couture said. “From the careful loading of these works, to the placement within the windows, it was a skillful labor of love to bring these to our community. We hope you enjoy the time these sculptures reside in these windows.”
