Public-Artwork is an experienced team of professional artists that specialize in designing art to enhance the public place. The team has a design studio in West Palm Beach, FL and a design and fabrication facility in Little Rock, AR. Terry and Maritza have had art installations and exhibits all over the world.
The fully equipped facility fabricates fine sculptural shapes through the use of large shears, brakes, rolls, plasma tables, gantry cranes, kilns, forklifts, etc. Most importantly, having an in-house dedicated fabrication facility is a critical requirement for controlling every step of the art process by our talented and trained artists.
Artistic Director, Maritza, is a classically trained sculptor and creative design artist, Terry is Business Manager (MBA), engineer (BSIE), and studio art major. Andy, Fabrication Facility Manager, has an MFA. Additionally, there is a permanent staff of craftsman welders, painters, and computer design specialists.
The team portfolio includes public sculptures made of bronze, steel and concrete in both abstract and figurative modes. The team is also pleased to consult on lighting and landscape concepts. Please see video below for a glimpse of the fabrication facility and typical artwork creation.
