For some time now I've been reducing the human form into the simplest recognizable works to convey the joy and celebration of life through dancing themes.
2000 - PRESENT
While Jerry Daniel's public work dates back to 1974, these selected works are his most recent and prominent projects. If you have any inquiries about previous or other works, please contact the artist at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dancers at La Villita is a pair of 20’ tall welded steel figures installed in a public park on Gran Via at Las Colinas in Irving, Texas. The sculpture was commissioned by Carter- Burgess and gifted to the City of Irving.
This sculpture was commissioned after Jerry Daniel’s participation in the Kemp Arts Center 2nd Annual Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit. The sculpture garden at the Kemp in Wichita Falls, Texas is named in honor of Minnie Rhea Wood,
and used is an image of his Dancer as a logo to identify all the sculpture in their outdoor sculpture garden.
Dancers MM is a pair of 30’ tall ferro-cement dancing figures for the
main entry to Hall Park and the Texas Sculpture Garden. These sculptures have become the logo and symbol for the Hall Park.
In 2015, three pair of 1/2 size Dancers were commissioned for other entries to the office park. These were delivered to install September, 2016.
Additionally, a group of 11 welded steel “Haiku Dancers” have been added to the Hall’s collection and are installed on a lake on Gaylord Parkway in the park.
