When considering public artwork for our new building, we committed to the natural theme presented by the current wildlife sculptures at locations around The Woodlands. To achieve our vision, we selected Edd Hayes, who is well known for the huge “Wild and Free” monument at Reliant Stadium in Houston. As our building is situated beside a lake, Edd presented the concept of a group of great blue herons along the fountain in front of our building, and proposed creating those sculptures in stainless steel. Working with Edd throughout the project was a pleasure and the result is a truly magnificent display of fine art.
