[Newman, Kylie] Rzeszów Installation Art

Written Concept

A crane to represent Gainesville and a stork to represent Rzeszów. Together in the form of a heart.

Letter to the Mayor 

Dear Mayor Lauren Poe,

My name is Kylie Newman. I’m a 6th grade student at P.K. Yonge, and I’m designing an installation artwork to represent the friendship & relationship between Gainesville and Rzeszow. 

I’d like to propose a medium, maybe on the large side sculpture, approximately 6 feet high, 4 feet wide, and 2 feet deep – just about the height of  a human being to inspire other artists while remaining amazing. This metal sculpture, in the form of a bird (to represent a dove which is the sister city symbol) I think this would show the relationship between Rzeszow and Gainesville. The sculpture would be metal to match most of the other sculptures around Gainesville, while also being strong and to withstand weather. 

Ideally, the sculpture would be installed prominently in Gainesville and in Rzeszow. The Sister Cities Pavilion in front of City Hall would be a perfect location. If this is location is not able to happen I would like to put it somewhere in the art wing in P.k

I hope my artwork will inspire citizens and artists in Gainesville to learn about Rzeszow and its relationship with Gainsville. I hope that it will be a reminder (in art form) of our friends in other countries. When someone looks at it, I hope they think about how big the world is, and how we have friends on the other side of the world that want to meet us and share their culture with us. It will bring our cities closer together, it will celebrate our friendship, and it will make the world at once more wondrous and more accessible to the people of Rzeszow and Gainesville.

Thank you for your consideration,

Kylie Newman
