Cambrian Beeline

Your wire mesh is great stuff! We really enjoyed working with it and hope to have an opportunity to use it again in the near future – the material's potential for fine art applications is broad." -Andrea Myklebust

The Cambrian Beeline is a Public Art project that is part of the Cambrian Branch Library, a project commissioned by the City of San Jose, California. Designed by Anderson Brule Architects, 80 feet of railing was built for the monumental stairway and balcony, which includes more than 70 cast bronze and glass elements. Imagery in the work is drawn from the natural and agricultural history of the region. Banker's stainless steel mesh was chosen by artists Andrea Myklebust and Stanton G. Sears.
