The Fountain Square Management Group and Duke Energy have announced the winners of EcoSculpt, a sculpture exhibit and competition to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.
Eleven artists were selected to create original works made of recyclable and/or recycled materials.
This year's winners, selected during an Earth Day event on Fountain Square, are:
- First place ($500): Isabella King for "Aluminum Anomaly", a spring fantasy of grass, flowers, trees and birds made entirely of pop cans.
- Second place ($250): Christopher Daniel and Sandra Gross for "Vitro House", a card house made of reclaimed glass windows.
- Third place ($150): Rachel E. Argo for "The Eye of Providence", composed of hangers arranged in triangles, then arranged together as equilateral pyramids.
The sculptures will remain on display on Fountain Square through April 29.
