TEMPE, Ariz.-- Tempe's Hayden Flour Mill is now the site for emerging student artists to get their work seen.
It's part of the city of Tempe, Chandler, and Scottsdale's platFORM project which aims to give student artists the opportunity to publicly display their artwork. It also prepares them to qualify for possible, future public art projects as well.
On Saturday, two students had their artwork installed in front of the Hayden Flour Mill. Their work will stay up for one year and will be replaced by new student artwork every year.
One of the two artworks just installed was created by artist Connor Coffman. He calls this piece, "Industrial Desert" and says about his piece, "The green represents the positive flow of life through the cactus that is both cool and warm all at the same time."
The other art piece was created by Graves' and Durham's Artwork and is titled, "Los Cactus Bailarines." Its creators describe the piece as, "an incorporation of the native American tribal dance of fertility by interacting with each other."
