Brenner is currently in St Petersburg, FL to install a set of glass and steel sculptures for his EDGE District Gateway Project. Concurrently, he has a solo exhibition at Leslie Curran Gallery featuring images of public artworks, maquettes, and sculptures.
The unveiling and ribbon cutting, hosted by EDGE District and City officials, takes place Friday, March 29th from 6:00-7:30pm at the SE corner of 16th St N & Central Ave N and is followed by a reception across the street at Leslie Curran Gallery at 1431 Central Avenue.
The EDGE District Gateway Project consists of ten sculptures made of glass and steel, installed around the perimeter of the EDGE District. Two of the sculptures (8’h x 3’-8”l x 1’-2”w) create powerful and iconic identifiers on the bookends of the District. They contrast a twisting tower of hand sculpted green jade float glass with the natural rust surface of weathered Cor-ten steel, accented with stainless steel and LED lighting. The remaining eight sculptures (6’h x 1’-2”w) located at focal points around the District consist of sculpted jade green float glass, weathered Cor-ten steel, and solar lighting.
