The Greatest (third view)

The Greatest was installed for the 2018 LandARTLab exhibit on King Farm in Woodstock, Vermont. It is based on the Mohammed Ali poem, the shortest in the English language, first recited following a speech he gave at Harvard University in 1975. It is also inspired by the teachings of Lama Surya Das, who has mentioned the poem in his talks and books. The piece transforms from "Me" to "We" on both sides. A video of the installation can be seen on my blog, Facebook page, and Instagram account (@robhitzig).

On display at Sculpture Fest 2018 in Woodstock, Vermont. It is inspired by my desire to see homes painted in interesting and fun ways. I particularly would like to see a multi-colored standing seam roof. The piece is interactive, designed to encourage photo-ops for family, friends, and individuals; and encouraging visitors to contribute art on the inside with chalk left within the structure.
