Feb 26 | February Fellowship Art Matters with Gordon Huether
Gordon Huether believes that a public art installation should do more than simply enhance a space and direct viewers through their experience of the site. Truly successful and exceptional public art should make the viewer’s experience of the installation an adventure, a visually and emotionally engaging experience that not only defines the space, but also creates a unique, iconic and meaningful journey through the spirit, identity and culture of the site.
GORDON HUETHER | BIOGRAPHY art matters
Committed to the goal of creating a lasting impact on the world around him, Gordon Huether, born in Rochester, NY in 1959, founded his studio in Napa, California with a mission to create large-scale site-specific permanent artwork installations. Working extensively with glass and lighting, and often incorporating repurposed objects, metals, and synthetic materials, Huether’s work ranges from integrated architectural installations to freestanding sculptures, to immersive artwork for landscape settings.
Huether’s careful consideration of the artwork installation in context with the place and its users has led to over 75 public art projects and over 170 private commissions. Projects have included installations for airports, civic buildings, corporations, hospitals, hotels, libraries, museums, parking garages, recreation, transportation centers, and universities throughout the world. In his biggest project to date, Huether is currently working with the Salt Lake City International Airport Department of Airports in designing, fabricating and installing significant multi-million dollar installations for its Terminal Redevelopment Program, expected to be complete in 2024. His work has also been exhibited at museums and galleries, and is collected across the United States.
