Agave’s vision for Rincón began with having a large art sculpture created by a local artist.
Integrating Agave’s modern aesthetic with the desire to promote a greater sense of community and friendship within the neighborhood, Agave partnered with local artist, Jeff Wise.
Jeff started working on the landmark sculpture in December 2018 before the onset of a very big winter, inside an abandoned home on the property. After assessing the conditions of the location with the vision of Rincón, Wise came up with a simple but complex design with aspects of a towering mountain, reaching ten 14-15 feet in height, but also suggesting the form of a spruce tree.
“I needed a piece that would visually shift and change as you drove past it without being too distracting,” said Wise. “The art’s location offers long vehicular site lines to the pieces and is also a focal point for both kids and their parents at the beginning and end of the school day.”
In early May 2019, Agave plans to celebrate the launch of Rincón by extracting the landmark sculpture with a crane, tearing off the roof of the house where the masterpiece was crafted, and placing on its new permanent foundation to mark the birth of Rincón.
It is Agave’s hope for all those who pass Rincón will take the art in, and be inspired, intrigued, motivated and provoked.
