holes no.13 through 18

for those who missed the previous two posts: you can call 801.349.3498 to listen to a super-nifty cell phone audio tour. once you’ve called in, simply dial each hole number followed by the # sign (so, for hole 3, you’d dial 3#) to hear each artist talk about their golf hole for about 1.5 minutes.

below are holes 13-18 of contemporary masters, artist-designed miniature golf. all photos were taken during the public opening reception, june 18, 2010 at the salt lake art center. my previous posts covered holes 1-6 and 7-12. Continue reading

holes no.1 through 6

ok — it’s taken me a couple weeks to decompress from the install, openings, road trip, and catching up with sleep & work, but i’m finally ready to post photos of the entire course.

pragmatic and pickle

assessing the hazards

we’ve been busy making hazards of all kinds — flames, rocks, sand traps, fireballs, dirt piles, reeds, stalagmites and more. lisa had the great idea to sketch out the platform on my folks’ driveway so we can see if we have enough obstacles made. we used a little styrofoam to prop up a couple taller pieces, and this is me trying to explain to my skeptical mom that placement of the hazards will very quite a bit in the final piece, and that we’ll have to figure out how to group items so golfers can walk the hole.
