Creating Spire was a wild ride – from its initial concept to its construction. I am so proud to have completed my most ambitious project (though I have more in the works!).
Thank you to all of my supporters as well as SiTE:LAB’s Paul Amenta, Tom Clinton, Bob Rogers, Dustin Meyer, James Balkon, and Tom Wagner; my talented friends Florian Altenburg and Marc Lins; my amazing dealer, Cristin Tierney and her Associate Director, Maria Kucinski; and, of course, my wife, Florencia Minniti.

Here is another clip from the film Art is the Prize by Storming the Castle Pictures.
Spire is officially complete…but before I share final photos with you, I would like to share this time-lapse video by Storming the Castle Pictures of the installation process.
As I mentioned in July, Tom Wagner is making a documentary film about ArtPrize entitled, Art is the Prize. Here is a snippet of the film that features me in New York City.
This past week, documentary filmmaker, Tom Wagner followed me around as I prepared and gave my lecture at SVA. He also took some time to sit down with Cristin, Heather, Maria and I as we discussed the next steps for the Spire project. My next phase will bring me to Grand Rapids.
