The Redwood City Improvement Association in partnership with Fung Collaboratives, has unveiled the latest Art Kiosk Installation exhibit by artists, Jose Castillo, Peter Moen and Tiffany Moen, titled “Bonds Unburnt.”
Join the opening reception on Saturday, November 16 at 4 pm at Downtown Redwood City’s Courthouse Square Kiosk to welcome the project to the district.
“Bonds Unburnt” embodies the connections created with other people relating to those of the tragic Californian fires of 2018. The installation is inspired by the Japanese “red string of fate” legend which states how people are connected through others who are destined to meet by the attachment of an invisible red string. Symbolizing the fires, orange strings were specifically used to represent the connections of those affected. The smell of charred wood will linger throughout the exhibition, allowing attendees to experience the atmosphere of the fires. The sculpture will encompass an hourglass shape, standing at 12 feet high with a 6-foot diameter. A basket will form at the middle of the hourglass, including the charred wood and personal items from the artists and donations from Redwood City residents.
In partnership with Fung Collaboratives, the rotating Art Kiosk Installations will continue throughout 2019 with different featured artists in an effort to enhance the community’s fine art scene for residents and visitors. “Bonds Unburnt” will be on display until December 16, 2019.
