    “Reflection” Public Art Dedication at Shelby Park 100th Anniversary

    Argent’s concept explores Shelby’s past, present and future through playful metaphors of reflection. Referencing the park’s former amusement park and the expansive wildlife, specifically the Mockingbird, it is within the sculpture’s materials and form where these whimsical reflections come together.

    In his research on Shelby Park, Argent discovered the park once contained an amusement park, and incorporated a representation of the park into his design, as well as paying homage to the abundant wildlife throughout the park, represented by a seven-foot-tall mockingbird sitting on a large piece of black granite.

    The “mirrored quality” of the mockingbird reflects the bird’s natural “mimicking qualities,” Argent said in his proposal. The opposite granite wall is carved “with a swirling motion that terminates into a hole suggesting curiosity and passage,” representative of an amusement park’s funhouse mirrors.

    The artwork will be installed in September and dedicated at the Shelby Park Centennial Celebration.
