another kind of growth, 2018
Cole Sternberg (presented by IF Foundation)
February 2018 – February 2019
Kings Road Park (1000 Kings Road, West Hollywood)
another kind of growth, by artist Cole Sternberg, is a delicate, figurative cast bronze sapling, standing at approximately 84-inches high. Vulnerable against the surrounding, semi-tropical green-scape, another kind of growth illustrates the fragility of our environment against overwhelming obstacles and pollution.
The artist’s goal with this artwork is to inspire awareness and gratitude for nature, while acting as a reminder that uniformed urban development results in the destruction of the earth’s most precious natural resources. another kind of growth echoes West Hollywood’s fearless, sometimes, solitary support for the arts, defense of the environment and advocacy for inclusion; issues that intimidate other cities of lesser mettle.
