Come celebrate the installation of Doug Coffin’s 30 foot monumental sculpture, “Spirit Totem”. The ribbon cutting celebration will take place on Friday, May 13th at 4pm and will be held at The Drury Plaza Hotel by their official art partner, Palace Avenue Arts. This installation will mark the largest sculpture to be placed downtown.
Doug is best known for his brightly painted steel and mixed-media sculptures. Coffin has developed a style that suggests a fusion of the ancient totemic forms used by many Native cultures with the abstract and geometric forms of modernism, creating a visual language that relies less on a narrative storyline and more on powerful design metaphors. Coffin’s career has seen his artwork placed in more than forty public collections and boasts six global placements through the Art in Embassies program. His monumental sculpture has stood regally in the White House Sculpture Garden among global masterworks.
