This is the site of a former mini golf course, and at one time housed a t-shirt shop called Wings, Inc How fitting for going hand in hand with our beaches and waterfronts. Love them or hate them, they are everywhere! Artisat Leo Sewell from Philadelphia, PA was commissioned for this project. Leo Sewell grew up near a dump. He has played with junk for fifty years and has developed his own assemblage technique. His works are collected by corporations, museum and individuals throughout the world. Leo continues to collect refuse out of which he fashions pieces of all sizes. The seagulls in front of Wings, Inc, are sculptures composed of recognizable objects of metal, chosen for their color, shape, texture, durability and patina. The objects were assembled and welded together. As of 2018, the Sturgis Charter Public School took over the 529 building. MORE INFO
