Day 1 – Light Dodger Installation

Sculptor Tj Aitken and crew begins installation of 20-ft Light Dodger sculpture at Bainbridge Shady Grove Apartments in Rockville. The sculpture was delivered on a flatbed truck early this morning. Parking spaces and a lane of King Farm Blvd was blocked off to make room for the massive crane. The sculpture pieces were then hoisted by crane up and over the trees to the foundation pad. Scaffolding then went up for the glass components, which will take all day to install. The Hemi Piston Street Lamps will be installed along the walkway on day 2 in addition to the sidewalk etching of the Dodge gasket patterns. (click on images for slide show)

 It’s a spectacular work of art and was an amazing process to watch – even in the scorching 90-degree heat!
