Title: Dancers MM
Date Creation: 2000
Location: Dallas Pkwy and Gaylord – Exterior TSG
“I felt very honored to have been commissioned to create the entry sculpture at Hall Office Park and the Texas Sculpture Garden. Although I primarily work in just welded steel, I have mixed steel with portland cement for thirty years. The size of Dancers MM required this mix. The sculpture, including the base is 30 feet in height. I wanted the sculpture to convey lightness and an uplifting feeling which would harmonize with both naure and architecture. Dance has been the focus of much of my work because of its commonality and timelessness to all cultures. I strive to dance with life and hope to convey it through my art." - Jerry Daniel, Artist
