Learning to Fly – Milwood Branch Library

Learning to Fly, 1997

Milwood Branch Library

These 5 painted steel sculptures on limestone boulders. A group of children at play, their arms stretched out to catch the wind, their faces turned to the sun, evoke the sense of community, learning and hope for the future that is symbolized by a library. The sculptures are gestural and graceful, and not intended to be portraiture. This artist who made the sculptures is Lori Norwood. She competed in modern pentathlon but she retired in 1991, began her career as a sculptor.  She studied art at the University of Texas at Austin.  She currently lives in Lawrence Kansas, married and have two kids.

The address is at 12500 Amherst Dr., Austin, TX, 78727

About christy

I'm a freelance photographer. I love creating visual eye candy, be it my digital artwork or photography. More often than not, it turns out to be a combination of both. Whatever catches my eye, I shoot, specializing in landscapes, sports and portraits." Hailed from the Texas-born Baton Rouge, Louisiana residence, my photography was always my hobby, off and on, when time permitted. I had itched for a big change. I bought my first DSLR camera, I found myself falling back into photography again, and I've decided to pursue it full-time. I am specializing in landscapes however my interests are in the horizon into family portraits, senior portraits, sports, events and whatever catches my eye, I shoot.
