Historic Kenwood is St. Pete's Neighborhood of the Arts. In 2019 was the first call for artists to submit proposals to create unique finials to top our decorative street corner signs. My entry was selected along with 12 others by a team of outside-the-neighborhood (neutral!) jurors. The sculpture is based on a screen printed poster I designed and printed a few years prior, which has since sold out.

Final, installed final. The avocado is 16" tall and turns in the wind.

Proposal to the council of jurors.

Constructed with rigid foam boards, Apoxie Sculpt clay, assorted hardware store nuts and bolts, Montana Spray paints and automotive 2k clear coat. 16oz. beer for…scale.
