Darl Thomas
The Power Station, 2013 etched glass windscreens, stainless, bronze benches

Darl Thomas, a Salt Lake City native and experienced sculptor has a lifelong admiration of the “generation of power” and the beauty of the electrical components. Thomas modified the three standard concrete benches on the platform into turbines, much like you would see in a hydroelectric plant. These refined sculptural benches are made of stainless steel and bronze. Thomas also etched all of the glass windscreen and windbreak panels with elegant images of insulators, wires, and transmission towers in various stages of detail and photos from the archives of Rocky Mountain Power.
