DROP is designed to articulate water in its simplest form of manifestation – a water drop. The sculpture serves as an iconic, signature marker announcing the entryway to the Prewett Family Park, in Antioch, California. At night, the semi-transparent sculpture is infused with brilliant blue LED lighting. Drop is situated in raised rings of landscaped earth; the terrestrial rippling emulating the motion of waterside and ripple, integrating the work of art within the context of the park and the natural landscape of the Sacramento River Delta.
