Moving Rock Field:
public sculpture, Frisco, Colorado, 1997
The Moving Rock Field is simply a collection of rocks elevated to a position where, if the viewer is still, they move subtly and constantly. Completed in 1997, this public sculpture is a permanent installation with a beautifully secure underground structure and clarity above ground.
The rocks are from all parts of Summit County, which itself is a fondue pot of snow and job seekers from all over the world. Nearly everyone is a transplant. The rocks are native, but have been shaped by their time in the county. From a distance they may look similar, like those on the distant mountains, but as anyone who's collected shells on a beach knows, when one is isolated it is unique and often beautiful.
Funded by the Colorado Council on the Arts and Summit County, the Moving Rock Field is situated outside the central library at the County Commons Building in Frisco, Colorado
