Go, Go, Go
etched and laminated mouth-blown glass
The Glendale Arts Commission, in collaboration with the Parks and Recreation Department and ART Architects, selected Gordon Huether of Napa, CA to create an artwork for the main entrance of the new Foothills Recreation & Aquatics Center. Go, Go, Go is made of etched and laminated mouth-blown glass imported from Waldsassen, Germany. The piece is composed of 19 panels and spans the entrance at approximately 14 feet by 16 feet. The imagery features hand-drawn international sports symbols that represent the various activities at the Center. The Glendale Arts Commission released a nation-wide call to artists in the spring of 2005. 65 applications were received. Mr. Huether’s design was approved by a selection panel, the Glendale Arts Commission and the City Council in the fall of 2005. The artwork and facility were dedicated on September 30, 2006.
