Cape Spirit

Art in Bloom continues its efforts to bring the sculpture “Cape Spirit” to Lewes. Rick Rothrock is a Delaware sculptor who has a considerable reputation for designing and placing his sculptures in the public domain. Rick currently has several works in both New Castle and Kent counties, but not in Sussex. Presentations are being given to a variety of Lewes’ entities prior to going before the Lewes Public Art Committee for approval.

CAPE SPIRIT SCULPTURE photo by Rick Rothrock

Cape Spirit is figurative in its proportions and gesture, rising upward in a posture of open joy and celebration. The sculpture is designed to be representative of the human expression. Its form evokes the waves, the wind and the clouds that created this place, and combines the human form with the nautical knot that ties the city to the sea. Cape Spirit offers a gesture of joy to the many people who will share it and experience its effect. At 20’ in height, it will become a landmark in the city and will draw citizens and visitors alike into and through the space.
