“Arlington County, Virginia, worked with Vicki to enhance Virginia's first DOT infrastructure project statewide, two overpasses along Arlington Boulevard (Route 50) near the County's government center. We knew we needed an artist thoroughly experienced in integrating artwork into infrastructure in order to be successful in this landmark effort. For ten years, Vicki patiently instructed all of us on how to accomplish our vision in her persistent, flexible and endlessly creative fashion. I have been consistently impressed with Vicki's ability to turn "no" around to "yes" and to adapt to a shifting set of parameters. I could not more highly recommend Vicki for her ability to envision and realize this complicated task of making infrastructure beautiful.”

Angela A. Adams, Director, Arlington Public Art, Arlington County, Virginia

 

“Vicki’s work celebrates the identity of the community through its infrastructure. She does her homework and brings unique aesthetic qualities that are reflective of local influences and local heritage to the urban environment. Vicki is a true professional collaborating with engineers and design professionals from project conception through construction. She has been a great asset and challenges the project team to think beyond the ordinary, inspiring solutions that are attractive yet integral to the urban infrastructure. Vicki’s contribution will provide a journey that is meaningful to the local community and that the traveling public will enjoy for years to come.”

“The City of Stockton contracted with VS SiteWorks to provide the public art concepts and construction support of the aesthetic elements for the North Stockton Railroad Grade Separations project. The $38M project includes the construction of two railroad over-crossings and one under-crossing. Vicki worked closely with the project team from design through construction. Vicki is very responsive to the needs of the project and adjusts quickly to meet tight design and construction schedules. Vicki is a true professional.”

James Wong, City of Stockton Dept. of Public Works, Project Manager

 

“The Meadowood project was the first Northern Nevada project to incorporate elements of the Nevada Department of Transportation's (NDOT)  Landscape and Aesthetic Corridor Plan which prescribed the goal of creating the interchange as a gateway to the nearby commercial district. In working with the team landscape architects Vicki was able to develop a strong program of retaining walls, bridge components and unique lighted tower structures that incorporated the theme based on the natural history of the place and objectives of the NDOT plan. The result is a cohesive and striking family of structures unique to the place and appropriate as a new gateway to the Meadowood Mall. The project provides a fresh and bright new component to the earlier aging infrastructure. Vicki's creative talent is supported by her outstanding technical ability to translate concepts into final design and work with project engineers to incorporate details. She approaches the work with passion and commitment.”
