Pence hosts artists’ talk on water tank project

From page A8 | November 06, 2011 |

Artists Sofia Lacin and Hennessey Christophel will give a presentation on the east area water tank art installation titled “Same Sun” from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Pence Gallery, 212 D St.

Attendees will learn about the inspiration for this project as well as its challenges, and will have an opportunity to ask questions of city staff members and the artists. The public is invited to attend this free event.

Lacin and Christophel, business partners and friends since high school, won a $75,000 city grant last fall to paint a mural on the 35-foot-tall, 4 million-gallon water tank in East Davis. Because the tank faces Interstate 80, city officials wanted it to be an eye-catching signature that would remind commuters of everything Davis is and has to offer.

Painting started in June with completion anticipated on Nov. 12.

The tank will feature shadows — cast by the sculptures — moving against a golden-hued backdrop. Once a year, on the summer solstice, the shadows will fall into place as the missing letters to the Latin phrase painted on the tank: “Sol omnibus lucet,” which means “The sun shines upon us all.”

Terrence Martin, a local metal artist known for his work at the Nugget Markets, designed the sculptures, which were to be installed at the end of October.

Almost immediately, the team’s design evoked curiosity, skepticism and criticism from the community. The Enterprise’s own Bob Dunning suggested the project was a waste of money, noting the first few coats of “drab colors,” in a column published in July.

In an Enterprise article about the project last month, the muralists said they knew the tank would be exposed and vulnerable to critique while the work was in progress.

No RSVP is necessary to attend the artists’ presentation and discussion at the Pence. For more information, call the gallery at (530) 758-3370.
