Art and Scaffold blend at Grounds For Sculpture, Hamilton Township, NJ

It’s awesome when I get to bring you stories off the beaten path. Most people don’t think art or beauty when they look at system scaffold. It tends to be a more utilitarian piece of equipment. But in the right hands it can be just as beautiful as a Rodin or a Donatello or even a Michelangelo.

Okay, maybe that’s a stretch…but look at what the artists at Grounds for Sculpture had us create for their exhibition Interference Fringe | Tallur LN

Ms. Faith McClellan had a vision and we were honored to help her carry it out. She had called several scaffold companies but none knew how to handle her ideas. “It was tough finding someone who could do what we wanted. I was happy to find your company,” she said.

And we, at Superior, love this kind of out of the box kind of challenge.

It was roughly 10 feet high with 2 levels. It was an odd shape roughly 28’ X 30’ in length. Most of the bays contained artwork by artist Tallur LN.

Only 3 of the bays were for personnel or visitors to view the installation. Those were on the top level. That level was decked solid with plywood for a smooth walking surface and had toe board and guardrails.

It was accessed via a stair tower made of system scaffold.

Grounds For Sculpture did the initial design but our team modified it where needed to work with their display. “The install team was fun to work with,” said McClellan. And we certainly love to hear that.

The installation will be open through January 5, 2020. It’s a wonderful display and we were proud to have been a part. It’s our little scaffold masterpiece – lol – to go along with their 42 acres of beautiful art! That’s right – a 42 acre sculpture park and museum in Hamilton, NJ.
