Ned Kahn

While working on my current public art project for the University Health System, I was introduced to the artwork of California artist and MacArthur Fellow Ned Kahn. Apparently, it looks like he might be doing a piece similar to these Pittsburgh and Switzerland pieces for the hospital being built in downtown San Antonio.

What makes this piece particularly exciting is that this piece will be on display where I-35 & I-10 meet -a road most San Antonians take as well as pretty much every traveler passing though the city from any cardinal point. You can see a computer animation of the proposed building with the highway intersection here.
