Thorsten Goldberg – Solo public art project
LOCATION: North East Transit Garage (NETG), Edmonton, Canada
Thorsten Goldberg was chosen as the artist who would deliver one of the City of Edmonton’s largest public art projects, complimenting their new 7-hectare transit facility. The project will consist of 5 massive polygonal topographical depictions of places in the world that are at equal latitudes as Edmonton, all fabricated out of stainless steel. NETG is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
Thorsten’s work is provoking in a way that connects the participant with his intent to serve as the voice of many. He embraces public engagement and constructive discourse while planning his works—and with a thoughtful mind he listens to all sides and then he acts, bringing in the right team to get it done.
