Welcome to our fourth Public Art Exhibition on Hilton Head Island, presented by Community Foundation of the Lowcountry.
We hope you enjoy the diverse selection of large-scale sculptures created by artists from as close as Hilton Head Island and as far away as Montana. This year’s exhibition still offers you a chance to stroll the grounds of beautiful Honey Horn, but we have a couple new things in store for you.

Now through the end of 2018
I have wanted to create some version of an abstract cross for quite some time now. Inspired by the religious relics at the Cloisters, in Manhattan, I felt that it should be interesting from all vantage points. I also have a fascination with bridges, and their precise structures. I had worked on a bunch of sketches but nothing really stuck. By integrating those two objects of my fascination and inspiration, I sketched this piece and finally it seemed to work.
