Re-imagining the Corner of 6th & Western

6th and Western Project

The Stillwater Arts & Humanities Council along with the City of Stillwater and its citizens are partnering for an initiative to re-imaging the northeast corner of 6th Street and Western Avenue This is a well-traveled entrance into the heart of the Stillwater. A work of art on this corner will serve as the catalyst for a larger, more comprehensive, initiative called the Gateway Project. The Gateway Project includes the identification and implementation of gateway signs, district boundaries, wayfinding, and public art. The selected sculpture will welcome everyone into the heart of Stillwater and become a defining element within the community.

Artist Chosen for 6th & Western Project

The public has spoken and the winning artist is Morgan Robinson! To see more of Morgan’s work, visit his website at https://morgan-robinson.com. It takes all of those passionate about our city and the arts to make this project a reality. Please consider making a donation to help beautify this corner of Stillwater for all to enjoy.

Sculpture 2 - "Interlaced"

This sculpture, Interlace, is a tangible celebration of Stillwater.  An idea that no matter where we come from or where the future takes us, we will all be tied together in the lively community of Stillwater.  This elegant shape elongated on one of the busiest intersections will fascinate viewers by the interlocking silhouette that gently weaves within itself. 

This piece is 27ft long by 12ft tall.

Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.
