Dans Le Vent (In the Wind) is an installation created by Rick Lazes and the artists at the Art Factory. It is designed as a tribute to the men and women that create fabric costumes for stage and screen and is composed of fabric that has been stretched over steel rods, then suspended naturally from three concentric wood rings so they sway as if blowing in the wind. It is 22 ft. tall and 12 ft. in diameter.
Rejuvenation is a sculpture that celebrates the re-openings of live performance, television and film industries and the return to work of the thousands of people that work to support Broadway productions. Artist Rick Lazes is seen exploding through the stage floor as live performance reopens worldwide.
