Sculpture Art in Maryland: Wildlife of the Chesapeake

Baltimore-based mural artist Michael Kirby creates three-dimensional works of art – and they’re not just limited to paintings. His latest project, commissioned by the Riverside Apartment Complex in Aberdeen, Maryland, will be sculptural. Forged of sheet metal and pre-casted metal objects, the statue is slated to include Blue Herons and other native Maryland wildlife. The community proves a befitting place for such a subject matter, as Aberdeen is deemed the “Gateway to the Chesapeake Bay.”

Known for its combination of natural surroundings and close proximity to the big city of Baltimore, Aberdeen’s milieu, in a way, mirrors the sculpture itself, whose natural elements are offset by the industrial feel of the metalworking. Stay tuned to find out more about this project, and look out for pictures of the piece on Michael Kirby’s Facebook page.

Michael Kirby has been creating permanent and temporary public artwork all around the world for the past two decades, and now, he’s stationed in Baltimore, bringing his renowned murals and public art to the local community.
