"Birds, Bridges and Bikes..." Ghostlike wire hawks echo within the visitor center... further in, wire bridge and a pair of men's and women's vintage Schwinn bicycles enhance the regional recreational themes.
The see-thru nature of wire sulpture lens an exciting sense of spirit and movement to a space, while allowing the airiness of the space to remain fully optimized.

In bidding for the contract to build the Blue Ridge Parkway project, Hadley Exhibits of Buffalo, NY, commissioned Elizabeth Berrien to create site-specific sample "wire and rod objects" of hawks, 15-ft bridges and vintage bikes.  According to the NPS project architect and designer, the decision was made to award the project to Hadley Exhibits rather than another contract bidder... based on the brilliant excellence and suitability of Berrien's wire sculptures.

These 2D wire sculptures became essential interpretive elements of National Park Services' Blue Ridge Parkway Destination at Asheville, NC. During installation, Berrien was informed that specs for the room-spanning wire bridges had been changed - they needed to be reduced from 15ft to 13.5. The artist accomplished the emergency custom modification on-site, completing all wire and rod elements within deadline.

Considering the magnitude of the space needing interpretive exhibit sculptures, in 2007 Berrien produced a stellar array of custom, site specific wire sculpture bridges, birds and bikes to set the character of the space... for just under $65,000. The airy nature of wire sculpture requires less materials than the heavier, more tradition metal and wood sculptures, creating a smaller footprint... Wire Sculpture is Very Green!
