The goal of the proposed art for Pioneer Community Park is to create a sculptural presence in the landscape which is large enough to be seen from multiple perspectives and complex enough to be interesting and dynamic as one moves around and through large portions of the park.  The form of the two sculptural wheel elements which make up this proposal comes from the name of the park, the spirit of the land on which the park sits, and from the history of the Town and region of Peoria.  In some ways one can see the history of the area as a series of wheels rolling across the land.  First there were horse and mule-drawn wagons, then the wheels of the railroad, which made way for the eventual farming of the land, which brought more wheels.  With Pioneer Park comes more wheels: the wagons of recreation, of bicycles, of strollers, of playground equipment, of frisbees, and wagons carrying picnics and of course the wheels of the automobile that bring people to the park.

You may provide your comments regarding Thomas Sayre's proposal in the box below:

The concept for this sculpture starts with an afternoon family outing to the park to see a local little-league ball game. The youngest of five is playing shortstop. The crowd soaks in the scene; the smell of the grass, the brilliance of the sky overhead and the game is one whose beauty, in the words of John Updike, is refined from country pastures, and whose very taste is that of America.  But the game and the taste of the game are not complete without the iconic snack known to young and old, the hot dog.  One popular story dates the marriage of hot dogs and baseball to 1893, when Chris von der Ahe, a German immigrant and owner of the St. Louis Browns, introduced the hot dog at his ballpark.

In thinking about the perfect art for this park, I immediately felt the excitement of going to a sporting event and gravitated to the idea of creating sculptures that suggest one of the sports that can be viewed and participated in at Pioneer Park, baseball.  I have created an installation in my contemporary style that embodies America’s favorite pastime and the thrill of attending or playing this game.

“RED MOUNTAIN” evokes in me the images of the great mountainous landscapes and canyons in Arizona, the ancient cliff walls, the fields of giant split boulders, and the streaking colors of natural oxides in the rock formations.  The colors of "RED MOUNTAIN" copper will be brought out by the semi-random application of a simple oxidizer and then sealed with a clear lacquer.
