Thanksgiving Point and Adobe Promote New Artist in Residence for 2012

Press Release

August 7, 2012

Thanksgiving Point announced the new Artist in Residence for 2012 as Andrew Smith, a local prominent artist known for his unique metal artwork. Smith will be supported by both Thanksgiving Point and Adobe as he uses the combination of art and science to create an original kinetic art piece.

“Thanksgiving Point and Adobe are jointly promoting the arts and sciences in the local community,” said Mike Washburn, chief executive officer at Thanksgiving Point. “We look forward to seeing Andrew’s creative work come to life in the view of the public during the following months. His work is a great example of hands-on learning, which correlates with our mission in providing transformative, meaningful experiences.”

“Creativity – a core value of our business – is at the center of Adobe’s culture and history,” said Jonathan Francom, director of global workplace strategy & programs at Adobe. “Showcasing the work of a local kinetic-sculptor, Andrew Smith, gives global visitors coming to our Utah office a glimpse of the caliber of artistic talent our area has to offer.”

Smith is an award-winning artist from Lehi who is known for his distinct art style in using scrap metal and has had several art exhibitions on showcase across the country. With this new project, he will build a unique rolling ball sculpture that will use gravity to keep the ball in continuous movement throughout the piece.

The Artist in Residence project will be a work in progress that the public can view at Thanksgiving Point’s Water Tower Plaza through October. Upon completion, the art piece will be housed in Adobe’s Utah Campus this fall.
