Best Public Art Orange County 2010 - Up Up Up to Where Even George W. Bush Has Got Soul (After Neil Young)

Jason Butler's 2008 fabricated and forged steel sculpture at Irvine Valley College is a triumph of the living, the breathing and the thinking as curled tendrils spring from concrete and extend toward the sky, attaching and wrapping themselves around a rigid iron beam, a fencepost, changing their color from industrial gray and iodized red to a bright-yellow enamel. The name of the sculpture is inspired by and revised from Neil Young's ode to Richard Nixon ("Campaigner").
