Sculpture

Gale Fulton Ross' multidimensional talents find creative expression in multiple media. In the late 2000s she was awarded a grant, backed by the National Endowment for the Arts, to create a monumental work of Public Art to anchor the revivalist urban design of the city of Opa-Locka, Florida. Her concept was realized in the form of the sculpture called Miss Mary, and a public art project called One Story.

In its concept stages, clay renderings of a head-wrapped old woman gave rise to the tabletop sculpture dubbed Miss Mary...

Miss Mary "table top" sculpture

The concept progressed through several architectural design stages, including scale models...

Miss Mary in the transition to the One Story design. Each 3D model is 3 feet high.

The final piece was a 30-foot tall, stainless steel lattice in the form of the bust of a wizened and elderly woman, a symbol of generational affection and wisdom. The statue conceals a time capsule containing memorabilia contributed by community residents.
