Local Artist launches Kickstarter to fund giant sculpture in Poland

Local Artist launches Kickstarter to fund giant sculpture in Poland

Local artist and architect, Bill Gould, is seeking to bring community based public art to a neighborhood in Poland. Many Campbell residents are probably unknowingly familiar with some of his architectural work; he designed the Campbell Veterans' Memorial.

Gould has launched an ambitious Kickstarter campaign to construct a large public art piece in Lublin, Poland. He needs $30,000 USD for the final fabrication and installation costs; even the smallest donation helps.  The sculpture, titled Maki (meaning Poppy in Polish), is a 24 foot tall (8 meter high) representation of 5 poppy flowers. “The red poppy is a symbol of hope and solidarity for the Polish people”, Gould explains. Made of steel, blown glass, and hand-made ceramic tiles, Gould hopes to see the piece installed this summer at a small park located within the Czuby Housing District.
