Martha Madigan has created large scale public works of art. Her first public art commission was to fulfill Philadelphia’s One Percent for the Arts requirement for the then new CoreStates Center, the home arena of the Philadelphia Flyers and the Philadelphia 76ers (now known as the Wachovia Center). For this commission, Madigan created Elements, a 28 foot high glass and steel sculpture that incorporated the then new state of the art digital imagery. This sculpture is suspended from the 68 foot high ceiling in the west atrium of the arena.
Recently Martha Madigan created Oak Seasons to fulfill the New York City School Authority’s One Percent for the Arts requirement for PS/IS 499. This work of art comprises three glass curtain walls in which Madigan has employed both sandblasted glass and a new state of the art hand painted glass glazing technique.
