From the Lakefront Sculpture Exhibit [LSE] website..
In his 25 years as a sculptor, Andrew Arvanetes has displayed work all over the country; Texas, Iowa, Arizona, and Wisconsin. How-ever, if his sculptures were to be collected into one space, what you would find would be more reminiscent of a cast of characters than a sculpture garden. Though there is nothing human about Arvanetes’ steel sculptures - he always manages imbue an expression of humanity into his work by including a jaunty angle or curious tilt.
The newest character in Arvanetes’ cast, “Once Around The Block”, fits easily into a body which he describes as “object oriented, narrative work.” And, in true deference to imagination, Arvanetes leaves it up to the viewer to dream their own story.
