Public Art Sculpture Unveiled at Auto Mall

PALMDALE – Revolution, a distinctive new public art sculpture, was unveiled at the Palmdale Auto Mall on Friday, Dec. 2. This one-of-a-kind mirror-polished stainless-steel sculpture, created by artist Heath Satow, is located at Auto Vista Drive and Carriage Way, just south of Technology Drive. The installation is a public-private partnership between the City and the Palmdale Auto Mall. The piece is part of the Palmdale Public Art program and represents the Public Art Commission’s first formal unveiling.

Revolution creates a sense of motion through its shape and reflection. The curves of vehicular body shapes are mirrored in the sculpture, and the mirror-polished stainless-steel finish is reminiscent of one of the most common car details: chrome. Just as natural light changes and the colors of the seasons change, these permutations reflect in the art and change it from moment to moment.

The cost for the design, fabrication, transportation and installation was $185,000, paid for primarily through the Public Art fund. Maintenance of the sculpture and the roundabout will be the responsibility of the Palmdale Auto Mall.

About the Artist

Heath Satow works primarily with mirror-polished stainless steel because of its visual variety. Satow is based in Ogden, UT, and has over 30 years’ experience creating public art worldwide, including in Dubai, South Korea, and throughout the United States. Satow attended North Carolina State University School of Design, where he graduated with honors with a concentration in sculpture. His piece “Ripple” was winner of the 2012 Americans for the Arts’ Public Art Network Award in Los Angeles and was commissioned by the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Commission.
