Edgar Heap of Birds

This artist had a different approach to his art than what I am used to, and he brought to the table very creative techniques of display that were refreshing.

His creation of these pillar-like statues were like nothing I have seen before, and I liked how at first you see these simple bright red, 9 foot tall towering mod structures, but when you walk up to them, these images and words in black writing come into focus, allowing some insight to the mind of the artist. He incorporates a lot of history, especially of Native Americans and the U.S., and also throws a few political loops in there as well. I was especially drawn to the signs he created as art. All of them were posted on public grounds, and each read a different but important message. I liked how these messages were to the point, and made you finally stop dead in your tracks just to read a sign on the street.
