Bobbi Mastrangelo’s “Grate Works of Art” on Exhibit at Littlejohn Engineering Associates in Orlando

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Littlejohn Engineering Associates have Bobbi Mastrangelo’s “Grate Works of Art” on display at their Orlando Florida Office.

Littlejohn Engineering Associates was established in 1989. The Firm provides cutting edge landscape architecture, planning, environmental and engineering services from 6 locations around the country.  Littlejohn is headquartered in Nashville with offices in Chattanooga TN, Decatur AL, Tri-Cities TN and now Orlando and Ft. Walton Beach FL.

Lennie Arnold, the Florida Regional Manager saw Mastrangelo’s Art exhibited with “The Best of the Best” of Orlando Museum’s 1st Thursday Winners at the Mayor’s Gallery in Orlando City Hall. He contacted Bobbi about displaying her art at the Office of Littlejohn Engineering Associates in Orlando.   150 – 200 folks are expected to  attend their 25th Anniversary Celebration which would be a great time to see her art.

Bobbi Mastrangelo’s Sculpture relief work based on drains, gas covers, grates, manhole covers and water covers appeals to engineers because of the technical subject matter, her trompe l’oeil mastery and the environmental message of protecting our precious resources. Mastrangelo, with her penchant for circles, has been creating her “Grate Works of Art” since 1979.  She is listed in the Marquis “Who’s Who in American Art” and has art in museums and prominent collections.

Here are four of Mastrangelo’s works from “The Best of the Best” on loan to Littlejohn Engineering Associates in Orlando.

Bobbi Mastrangelo “Solivita Scene” is based on one of the common scenes of her Solivita Community which reuses recycled water to irrigate the landscape.  That relief work and “City of Orlando” were recently featured in “Sculpture:  the Ultimate Process” at the Orlando Museum of Art, First Thursday Event in January 2012.
