Public unveiling and dedication will take place at 2pm on Friday, May 30th at Building 9 at NetApp's headquarters in Sunnyvale
Soaring 25 feet into the Sunnyvale sky, Double Diver by New York sculptor Carole A. Feuerman is the latest art installation for the citizens of Sunnyvale, California. The sculpture was commissioned by NetApp through Sculpturesite Gallery as part of The City of Sunnyvale's "Art in Private Development" program, which requires developers in Sunnyvale to invest 1% of their development costs in public art. Gallery owner Brigitte Micmacker was personally involved in all stages of the commissioning process through the concept, fabrication, and installation. Micmacker’s gallery has focused entirely on sculpture for 24 years and represents 75 regional, national, and international sculptors. It is her expertise in sourcing and managing sculpture projects that helped Sculpturesite land this commission.
Double Diver began five years ago with Feuerman and her team working with a live model in her New York City studio. The sculpture is so unique that new methodologies had to be invented to realize it. It is truly the first of its kind both technically and artistically, and the challenging task was caught on a fascinating video:
