Vector and Friends: The Art of Fabricating
ISC Chicago Conference, Oct. 4, 2012.
The sculpture in this exhibit is by artists who have employed the services of Vector and the artists who provide those services on behalf of  Vector. On a regular basis over the past 34 years these two groups of artists have collaborated to make sculpture that has required their mutual efforts.  the only exceptions are Professor Gary Freeman who inspired the founders of Vector with the potential of fabricated metals at John Herron School of Arts; and Professor Roger Blakley, an artist they admire who was central to their graduate experience at the University of Illinois. vector Custom Fabricating Inc. is taking this occasion of the ISC Conference in Chicago 2012, to express it's gratitude to all artists that have made it's long history of making art possible.
