EVS Metal: Fabricating the Margo Sawyer Sculpture

I bet you didn’t know EVS was into the art scene, did you?

Well down in Houston, EVS is supplying the materials needed to create amazing sculptural pieces, like the one artist Margo Sawyer created for a new outdoor space, Discovery Green.

When finished, the sculpture drew quite a bit of national attention. So much so that United Airlines put it on the cover of Hemispheres magazine:

Who knows, maybe artistic sculpture is our new thing…?
