In this Artist Statement Minute, Beatriz Mayorca discusses her sculptural seating installation, Nurture. Nurture is located in Hightower Park at 208 Patience Latting Circle near the Hightower Building and Oklahoma City’s City Hall.
Nurture was funded through Downtown Oklahoma City Initiatives’ Artist Invitational program. Mayorca was one of two artists chosen to install projects in downtown Oklahoma City. The Artist Invitational serves as a platform for local artists to submit their ideas for public art and placemaking in downtown Oklahoma City, and it has a dual purpose: to inspire conversation, whimsy, and wonder downtown, and to activate unused space or reinvent existing space in the urban core.
