This artwork was commissioned for the Richmond Flying Squirrels Minor League Baseball Team. Located on the Will Call building just as you enter the gates, this piece contains over 100 acrylic baseballs engraved with memories about The Diamond submitted by fans. We engaged with fans while attending games and through various social media platforms.
Each memory has been laser etched onto a piece of painted clear acrylic and attached to another piece of black acrylic for the threads of the ball. In order to install the work, we essentially made puzzle pieces out of the acrylic baseballs that fit together into a floating frame with lots of crazy angles. The acrylic baseballs are attached to a ½ in frosted acrylic substrate that was cut on a CNC router. The placement of each ball had to be precise to the design.
