Scott Clendaniel's experience with public art is gradually increasing, as he completed his fifth public art project in October, 2021. Clendaniel believes that art in public places should not only enhance a space, but should also evoke an emotional experience for viewers. The foundation for a successful public art project is open dialogue with project representatives. Strong communication means understanding the client’s perspective on the project, and creating an artistic response that absorbs those ideas. Clendaniel has completed every public art project on time and on budget.
