A recent permanent public artwork in Knoxville, Right Angle Reply (Tall Grasses), was recently unveiled at the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum (July 10, 2014). This is a project that, while complete as a visual, sensory experience, has a notable story behind its creation. Artist Brian Jobe presents this story, revealing what influenced the project as well as the process of constructing the final finished work. He also shares his views about the potential benefits of artists engaging the community, something that has shaped his work and is a focus of his studio.
