Sanguine Standing Stone and Jaunty Hornbeam were acquired through “Titration3: Rock, Paper, Sculpture,” a one-year, solo on-loan outdoor sculpture exhibition on the grounds of Dublin Arts Council from October 2009 through September 2010. The exhibition featured the work of Joseph Wheelwright, a Boston master carver and sculptor of stones, bones, trees and other natural materials, and was supported in part by a “Challenge America: Reaching Every Community” grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The exhibition included three compelling works of art: an artwork in stone, a tree creation, and a bronze sculpture. Two of the contemporary sculptures remain as permanent installations, as selected by a community voting process. They draw visitors to the grounds of the Dublin Arts Center and encourage exploration of the riverfront grounds and the lovely historic facility.

Titration is a common laboratory method used to add a measured quantity of a reagent, called a titrant, into an unknown reagent, called a reactant, to produce a chemical reaction. The exhibition series reflects the fluid properties of its name in the figurative sense: our changing community, our growing collection of public art, and Dublin’s sense of cultural identity. The exhibition dovetailed with the introduction of Riverboxes, another public art initiative that encourages historical and artistic exploration and response to the river in our midst.
