August 02, 2007: Red Hot Waukesha ART PREVIEW excerpt

By Peggy Sue Dunigan

...a special ceremony in the Waukesha Transit Center is scheduled to kick things off at 10 a.m., when the Waukesha Public Art Committee dedicates “Fragmented Flow” by artist Paul Phelps. Stained in sea and sky blues in order to look like a wave on water, the metal and glass installation spans a 100-foot length of ceiling in the reception area. When daylight hits the structure, the blue hues cause the interplay of shadows and reflections to resemble drops of rain falling to the floor. Complementing the new artwork is “Fox Fish”, a mobile reminiscent of Alexander Calder, which is suspended from the main entrance. “Life's Ribbon”—a lake blue, large-scale sculpture—stands outside the building in view of the RiverWalk.

"Public art creates an awareness of art to people who may not have access to the experience at every economic and demographic level," said committee chairwoman Susan Buchanan.

Committee member and Art Crawl founder J.T. Seymour said he agreed with Buchanan about the importance of public art. "Art is a wonderful, welcoming addition to our community when people use the Transit Station," he said. "We should have public art everywhere, so everyone can enjoy and appreciate it."
