"The piece portrays about 40 local artists trying to make it in the industry.

“The title of The Storm is a metaphor for the creative process,” Arnold says. “The storm gathers when you have an assignment or a piece you want to execute. You get into this tumultuous state of mind. Staring at that blank canvas, anxiety mounts up, and then it starts clicking, and that’s the center of the storm. That’s where we get this passion, this fire swirling.”

“Since one of the key buildings in the area is the Meyerson—and at that time, besides the DMA, was the premier building—we took a few nods from that,” Garrison says. “The conductor is conducting the arts, not just the music. The sphere behind him was taken off some of the architecture from the Meyerson. We gave subtle nods toward that property. In this case, the maestro is turned toward the viewer, which is unusual because usually you see the back of his head.”
