Serendipity. That's the word Bodovino events coordinator Mandy Wood might use to describe how the installation of a new, custom work by local artist Darcie Nelson came to be.
Bodovino was looking for a customized work of art that would reflect the "warm industrial" vibe of the wine bar. Nelson, who uses reclaimed motorcyle gears, old wine-barrel rings and other salvage yard finds, stopped into Bodovino for lunch one day and she and Wood started talking. Fast-forward to now, when a construction crew will be installing the giant artwork Bodovino commissioned Nelson to create. The piece, comprised of three gears, emulates Bodovino's simple three-ring logo, but it takes a crew to install because one of the reclaimed gears alone weighs almost 50 pounds.
It promises to be a sight to see--and if you need a little more light with which to do so, Nelson will also have some of her wine-barrel-ring lights on display and available for sale.
