Two Button Sculptures have been installed at the Infinite Energy Center thanks to the Gwinnett Creativity Fund grant program.
The Sugarloaf Community Improvement District worked with the non-profit organization Button Art, Inc. to select the design “JAZZ” by artist Bill Stevens from the juried entries provided. The chosen art was appropriate for the Infinite Energy Center entertainment district and to represent the Sugarloaf community as Gwinnett’s Downtown, a location for arts and culture.
In addition to the sculpture at the Infinite Energy Center, an interactive chalkboard Button Sculpture was also installed at the Hudgens Center for the Arts. The chalkboard allows for community participation, creating a space for artistic expression, temporary art projects, and collecting notes or ideas from the community.
