ART sun-catcher sustainable solar light sculpture - The Alternative

ART sun-catcher sustainable solar light sculpture - The Alternative

Artist Dee Dee Morrison and her Morrison Studio created and installed her solar-powered Sun-Catcher sculpture as part of Clearwater, Florida’s Sculpture360 program. The 15 foot tall Sun-Catcher is constructed of recycled aluminum and vibrant yellow lucite panels. The solar-powered totem features a solar panel that is integrated into the top of the piece. The sun’s energy captured by the solar panel during the day is used to illuminate the piece after dark – lighting up downtown Clearwater and serving as a testament to its marriage of art and sustainability. The Sculpture360 art program is sponsored by Clearwater’s Public Art and Design Program in partnership with the Downtown Development Board.
