Fruit n’ Veg
The goal for this artwork is to create an engaging and delightful public sculpture that says “grocery store”, highlights the new “lifestyle” Safeway at Gateway UTC, and focuses on healthy food and a healthy diet. The large sculpture will be formed out of wood and detailed with metal elements for leaves and stems. Sourced from mostly local species of wood, the piece will stand thirteen foot six inches tall in the new Safeway Plaza along East West Highway in Hyattsville, Maryland.
