Will Nettleship is a sculptor based in Los Angeles. In addition to his studio practice, he has built public art in many places in the U.S. and at two sites in Europe. With his public sculptures his goal is art that tells visitors something of interest about the public use and the cultural or natural history of the place where it is. Because his public sculptures become an integral part of a landscape or public building, he has consulted with architects, landscape architects and engineers on numerous projects to coordinate his work with theirs. He has also been an artist on several formal design team projects including a two-mile long flood control corridor and public park in Phoenix, Arizona, a one-mile long commercial streetscape in Pompano Beach, Florida, and a renovated parkland lake in Kansas City, Missouri. A number of his public sculptures have been made for children, including art for young people’s areas at two libraries and play spaces at schools. He has also built art for people with disabilities. Among those was a set of navigation sculptures using the sense of touch to guild both blind and sighted visitors through The Exploratorium in San Francisco when that museum was at the Palace of Fine Arts.
