Design for a Public Artwork in Commerce, Texas
"Eternal Carousel" by David Zvanut

Hunt County Public Art is an organization formed in 2014 to produce public artworks in Hunt County. My concept for a public sculpture in Commerce, Texas was chosen by them as one of two projects to fund in 2015. The first two photos show a 1/12 scale model of the proposed sculpture placed in the Commerce City Park. Construction began in April of 2015, and was completed in December 2015. A video about the proposed piece can be seen here: http://huntcountypublicart.com/?p=247
