"Silver Twist" is a stainless steel and dichroic glass sculpture created by artist Gordon Huether. It is located on the backside of the building at 2300 Empire St near the intersection.
Dichroic very basically means that the glass appears different colors when viewed from different directions. I really enjoyed how it reflects the flowers that are planted around it. The "twist" creates a lot of interest all the way around.
This functional piece of art is a giant welcome mat that is currently not being enjoyed as the building stands empty. The artwork was commissioned by Sears Great Indoors who originally owned and occupied the building located in the Empire Center at 1301 N. Victory Place. I wanted to be sure to document it on Art Around Burbank just in case the new owners decide to make changes that would affect it.
April Greiman is the innovative artist who designed this colorfully abstract piece that contains various materials including integral-colored concrete and imbedded stainless steel. It is called Zoids and is 10 x 60 feet. It was completed in 2002.
