Logline: Cityscapes Installation
Synopsis : In 2007 the Birmingham Public Art Board accepted The Sauvé proposal to curate the Cityscapes exhibit. The "Birmingham Cityscapes" exhibit is comprised of 10 large scale outdoor sculptures located in Downtown Birmingham. Over a three year period Sauvé raised over $200,000 in donations for the installation of the Cityscapes sculpture exhibit. All funding for this exhibit was raised through the private sector and through financial support from the Hill Gallery and the Sauvé Art Foundation. The Birmingham Cityscapes exhibit is represented by artists, Mark di Suvero, Dennis Oppenheim, John Sauvé, Ken Thompson, Chris Yockey, Nathan Diana, Harry Gordon, Jay Wholley and Jene Heinstein. In 2007 the installation of the Cityscapes Exhibit was underway. With every new sculpture, John Sauvé captured the process of installing the artwork. Cityscapes is a document of the sculpture exhibit by the same name.
So, the point is, public art, both highbrow and low, iseverywhere. Outside city limits, suburbs such as Birmingham have for public viewing work by such world-renowned sculptors as Mark di Suvero, Dennis Oppenheim and local creator John Sauve, who has proven to be one of Michigan's strongest individual proponents of public art.
