EcoSculpt winners announced

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.
Argo also received a $100 People's Choice Award for receiving the most public votes.

The sculptures will remain on display on Fountain Square through April 29.
