This site contains information on "The Open Mind Stage", an Urban Design project by international sculpture duo, Dam de Nogales.

This project is at one time an Open Air Theatre, capable of sitting 135 to 150 people, as well as a contemporary public land form sculpture.  From eye
level, it appears as abstract undulating forms of earth and grass.  From higher elevations, it appears the figurative sculpture of a human face -- its various
land levels, lit lightly at night.  Created out of CorTen steel (with a galvanized and steel structure) gravel, artificial grass, and silica sand, the Open Mind
Stage is both ecologically sound (LEED buildings standards) and maintenance free.  Other contemporary public sculpture installations or urban designs
can be viewed at the public art section of  
www.damdenogales.com.   Links to Technical Information, Contacts, Art Studio Locations, and other images
are available above.
