Happy Birthday: Janet Echelman

Janet Echelman is a contemporary sculptor who was born on February 19th.

Echelman is best known for combining fiber and engineering to create monumental soft moving sculptures. She is also well known for a Ted Talk where she inspires others through her innovative process.

I’ve actually experienced two of her works. One at Renwick in D.C. and in downtown Seattle, Wa. They really are as awesome as they look online!
