15c) The Key-Nicole Van Hook

Patron: Kappa Kappa Gamma
The concept for The Key sculpture is that everyone has a key hidden inside their heart.  The key unlocks their desire to love, to learn, to give and to create.  The sculpture is painted in silver and blush pink acrylic paints.  The heart is hollowed out and a door projects outward.  Inside the door is a key made of metal and adorned with paint and crystals to look timeless and magical.  There are hearts bursting from the doorway with crystals as the key is revealed.  The ribbon on the key is created from painted metal.
