THE POLE PEOPLE OF WHEATON
Safeway at Wheaton, MD
Commissioned by Safeway and Patriot Reality
Bronze and Stainless Steel
Varying heights from 4’ to 6’
The Pole People are located in the planters next to Safeway and can be seen by the pedestrians walking on the sidewalk as well as the people using the seating areas and walkways adjacent to Safeway. By placing the figures within the plants, flowers and trees of the planters, the public becomes Gulliver to a Lilliputian world. These stylized, playful depictions are of people shopping at the grocery store, planting trees, talking to their dog, getting coffee as they head for the morning commute and playing games with friends.
