Student Wins Sculpture Competition

Posted March 7, 2011 in Student

Kendall student Tristan Sisbach was the winner of the Ferris State University Festival of the Arts Civic Sculpture Competition.

Tristan‚??s entry celebrates her love of the Great Lakes. ‚?®‚?®‚??Coming from Iowa, I fell in love with the Great Lakes. When I first moved to Michigan, I would take my sketch book and camera to the beach and admire the movement and color.‚?Ě A senior in Kendall‚??s Sculpture and Functional Art program, ‚?®‚?®Sisbach said the colors, textures and movement of Lake Michigan inspired her. She also drew motivation from the sunsets, clouds, sand dunes, waves, driftwood, beach glass and dune grass she experienced during her visits to the beach. ‚?®‚?®‚??I want people to be inspired by the elements and movement of the sculpture. It‚??s about the idea of motion and color. I wanted to showcase how beautiful Michigan and the Great Lakes are,‚?Ě said Sisbach.

‚?®‚?®Her sculpture will be installed in Big Rapids‚?? Swede Hill Park, off of Baldwin Street. ‚?®
