This is our work from sculptor Mark Wholey.
It is a epoxy resin sculpture, 85 inches in height.
The work was installed on July 30 of 2020, and will show in Burlington for at least two years.
Mark’s statement about this work:
This figure reaches out to follow his/her heart. He strides with confidence and with sight on the possibilities. He is the everyman or woman with a dream. Every artist that ventures beyond security. The astronaut and inventor. The dreamer. It is about faith in oneself.
Here is a six minute video about the installation of Follow Your Heart and some words from Mark about the origin and meaning of the work:
