Fire Station #2 Metal Filmstrip

Mounted on the exterior walls of Fire Station #2, 37299 Niles Blvd.

Artist Vickie Jo Sowell created this work by cutting out forms in sheets of bronze or brass metal, then powder-coating with baked enamel. This design uses the metaphor of a filmstrip to depict scenes from the history and icons of Niles, frame by frame. Artist Sowell received her M.F.A. in Sculpture from Mills College, Oakland. She has many art installations throughout the Bay Area and has participated in California exhibitions every year from 1994 through 2008.
