There is very little time left before the Swing Set Drum Kit will be assembled and on display in Calder Plaza as part of ArtPrize 2012. The sculpture will move from Evanston, IL, to Grand Rapids, MI, next week and pictured here is just one of the many pieces that will make the trip east.
For those of you finding out about Swing Set Drum Kit for the first time, be sure to visit Dave Ford’s artist profile page at http://www.artprize.org/dave-ford/2012/swing-set-drum-kit for more information on this exciting sonic sculpture.
The Swing Set Drum Kit will be part of Adoration Detroit’s show in Calder Plaza featuring more than 20 artist’s works. Where exactly will the Swing Set Drum Kit be in Calder Plaza? Ford will install it on a patch of grass under some trees, but you’ll be drawn to it from afar with all the bells, gongs, whistles, booms coming off of the drum set. Have an awesome ArtPrize!
