The Lovely County Citizen’s article “Sphere Sends Artist’s Career Into Orbit,” was a full-page of praise for Robert R. Norman’s wide-range of artistic achievements in 2013, naming his success the #5 human interest story for the year. The article focused primarily on his first major community sculpture, The Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce Community Sphere, and included a review of his work with Crystal Bridges among other topics.
What a great way to wind it up for 2013!

The Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce named Robert R. Norman and Jeremy Mason McGraw Artist of the Year for 2013 at their annual Awards Banquet this November.
The artists' work with the Creative Energy Project this spring led to the creation of the Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce Sphere, a community sculpture that involved over 600 volunteers and months of preparation, and was installed in Basin Park during the 26th Annual May Festival of the Arts in 2013. The huge success of the Sphere project was integral to the artists receiving the award.
Sincere thanks to the Chamber and the City of Eureka Springs for recognizing this achievement!
We were excited to host Dustin Hodges from KY3 News out of Springfield, Missouri, who came to do a story on Robert's work on Sphere and the community art concept backed by the Creative Energy Project. The interview aired on April 22. Click here for the video.
