David Landis, a graduate of Riverwood High School who teaches sculpture at Georgia State University, was the winner of Art Sandy Springs’ sculpture contest at the Sandy Springs Library.
The nonprofit art organization put 10 sculptures, selected among 80 entrants, on display at the library in May, and the public voted on its favorite. Art Sandy Springs paid Landis $15,000 for the winning work, “Tumble,” which will be permanently displayed in the city.
Art Sandy Springs announced the winner at a ceremony Oct. 11 attended by about 100 people, including four of the artists. The other nine sculptures will remain on display until next May, and all are up for sale. Visit www.artsandysprings.org for purchase information. Brochures about the sculptors and their work are available at the library.
