Public Art Map

Special Feature: Inspire

 

“I am happy to be able to share with you ‘Inspire,’ a documentary on the creation of the Odessa Spire, and the history of Public Art in Odessa. I am very proud of this film, and the people who created it: director Matt Rist, photographer Clyde Aly, and the people who took time out to talk to us about the project: Toby Eoff, Dick Gillham, and artist Ray King. This documentary would not have been possible without the support of the Bryant Family Foundation.”
– Randy Ham, Executive Director
