Kate Firth: Amity of Ch$nge


‘Amity of Ch$nge’ is a continued exploration of the dreadful object, the parking meter. The common hate for them is not necessarily the object themselves but the strings that come along with it. Parallel parking into tiny spaces because the person behind you parked incorrectly, 2 hour limits, METER POLICE. This work was created for you to possibly enjoy the meter for once.

Kate Firth’s work has recently transitioned from interior wall hung sculptures to large exterior sculptures and public art. Kate works in a “direct work” manor as described by artist Mark di Suvero by using her own two hands to create the work herself. Firth designs and fabricates her sculptures in her studio just south of downtown Dallas. Intrigued with the experience of art outside galleries and museums, Firth wants the public to be able to engage in her sculptures in a non institutional environment. Kate’s public works can be seen in downtown Dallas, Henderson Avenue, Flower Mound, and Celina. She is currently shortlisted for a public sculpture for the city of Dallas and selected with a handful of artists for public art in Fort Worth over the next two years.
