   A resilient piece reminiscent of the area it represents and the time in which it was created
   NORFOLK , VA – A sculpture commissioned by the Norfolk Public Art Program will be unveiled on Saturday , May 7 , at 10:00 a . m . Join artists , Jonathan Russell and Saori Ide Russell of Ride Art Studio , and special guest , Councilman Tommy Smigiel , in Bay Oaks Park located at 2413 E . Ocean View Blvd .
   Standing at 23 feet tall , Dialogue is a free - standing , stainless - steel sculpture . Its unpredictable kinetic movements reflect the idea that there is unity in diversity . Like the Ocean View neighborhood , it represents a resilient and supportive community coming together . It was created by Jonathan Russell and Saori Ide of Ride Art Studio from Berkeley , California .
   The wind derived motion of the circles and copper elements is like watching dancers moving and responding to each other and invites viewers to join in a silent dialogue of discovery and enjoyment . The circles also symbolize unity , harmony , and balance . Organic forms within these circles emphasize the delicate balance between us and nature . The base of the sculpture is designed to mimic the feel of the old Ocean View rollercoaster . At night , color changing LED lights will glow from within the base of the sculpture for an evening enjoyment .
   The artwork celebrates their resiliency and community grass roots efforts . The artist team was selected , contracted , and created the artwork entirely during the pandemic . This artwork was realized despite the many challenges of travel bans , rising cost of steel , material shortages , supply - chain problems , rising gas prices and lack of truckers to get the piece to Norfolk . Everything about this piece in this park is about resilience and perseverance . Jonathan and Saori say , “We so appreciate the committees’ hard work and patience through these crazy times helping us bring this sculpture to completion . We look forward to the unveiling of Dialogue as we feel it truly honors the efforts of the neighborhood association as they came together and persevered to save this beautiful park!” .
