River Tones

Artist Statement
The H/S ART team is Lansing-based and has been producing public art projects in Michigan for well over a decade. Fred Hammond and David Such are life long art students. We are interested in any project that reflects the creative energy of Michigan-based artists and serves to put art into public spaces.

River Tones is an acoustic, art-metal sculpture. It will be fashioned from 100% recycled steel beams, nautical chain and other metal materials. The structure and chain supports two large gong type bells. Each will have a unique and earthy tone and finish. Visitors are invited to interact with the piece by creating their own river tones by striking the bells with a securely attached rubber mallet.
