Lines of a Corona
by artist Ian Cochran
The newest Art in R Park piece is located on North Roe just east of the Boulevard Apartments. The piece is called ‘Lines of a Corona’ and is made of steel and copper. Ian created a majority of his work while at the Kansas city Art Institute. According to Cochran’s website he is drawn to the structure of objects. He says that “At their very basic level, all things are molecules bonded together at angles”. This statement fully embodies the work that is located on Roe Boulevard. The purpose for some of his work is to juxtapose the organic and geometric to create a contrast in form that appeals to the universal human experience.

Organic Tee Pee
by artist Gyaltsen Wangmo Marquardt
The Tee Pee is representative of the recent history of Tibetan Nomadic tents used when traveling with the yak. Since no trees grow where she is from, the long wood pieces come from southern Tibet and they are covered with yak and sheep hair combed, spun and hand-woven into water-tight fabric.
