Bending Boundaries

Bending Boundaries

by Ptr Sponseller | Art Health Walk

Created in 2020

Artists: Ptr Sponseller

Location: NW Corner of  Gordon and Central

In 2020 when Ptr Sponseller set out to create a custom sculpture for NOTO he had a specific idea in mind. “I wanted something that kind of represented the district,” Sponseller said. “That’s why the shape of it is supposed to be the burning passion of all the people for the district. Then all the different little round things represent all of the different people of the district.”

“Bending Boundaries” sits at the corner of N.E. Gordon Street and Central Avenue. Its shape can be interpreted as a large flame that twists and bends.

The large sculpture took Sponseller nine months to finish, it is made of car and motorcycle parts, nuts, washers and electrical scrap.

The sculpture project was supported through JEDO and Arts Connect.

Activity: Push Your Own Boundaries, Move More

A good starting goal is at least 150 minutes a week, according to the American Heart Association, but if you don’t want to sweat the numbers, just move more! Find forms of exercise you like and will stick with, and build more opportunities to be active into your routine. 

* Get 10 min of activity in today! Take a quick stroll down Kansas Ave and around the block, this little jaunt will get in 10 min of activity, art, and .5 miles!
