Kinston SmART Vision Plan
“Vicki worked with us on a vision plan for Kinston, a small town in eastern North Carolina. She made several visits to the community getting to know townspeople, civic leaders, and local officials. She spent hours exploring and photographing the area. She held public meetings and met one on one with key stakeholders, never tiring of presenting information and ideas and encouraging feedback and input. The plan she developed with the community is comprehensive, informative, responsive to input, reflective of Kinston’s unique assets and history, and filled with compelling images, drawings and ideas. Kinston loves it and just received an NEA Our Town grant to begin implementation. 

“Vicki is a delight to work with. She’s thorough, fun and energetic, incredibly adaptable to any environment she's in, and her artwork is stunning and accessible to folks who have little knowledge of public art. She speaks the language of city planners and engineers, and she completely wowed our DOT, which commissioned her to design a bridge overpass in downtown Raleigh. I’ve learned so much from her and I look forward to continuing our work together.”

Railroad Switch, Hagerstown, MD
“'Railroad Switch' is an integral and prominent part of the City’s new Cultural Trail that connects the downtown to City Park. In the planning stages, we knew we needed a means to screen the commercial area to the west from the Trail but a solid wall of standard fencing felt inadequate. The Artist Selection Committee for the project chose Vicki Scuri to develop a solution based on her work at WAM in Wichita, KS. This project is fabricated out of .375” weathering steel plate with the beautiful plasma-cut “railroad switch” design that pays tributes to the railroad heritage of the corridor that the Trail traverses.  

“The panels were sandblasted and installed by City staff 'ready-to-rust,' upon delivery to the site. The final finish is an even, velvety texture. This project will be a landmark in the City for decades to come.”

WAM Windscreens, Wichita, KS
“I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Vicki Scuri SiteWorks on the roughly six-acre Wichita Art Museum Art Garden Master Plan.  Confluence partnered with Vicki for her vast expertise in art and site relationships, understanding of key views, and sensitivity to surrounding context. Vicki excels in open collaboration and played a crucial role in client charrettes, evaluating concepts and developing ideas. Based on the Master Plan recommendations, Vicki was commissioned to develop the Partition Screens, engaging ribbons of weathered steel that elegantly express the movement and patterns of wind. The Partition Screens came in under budget and I was impressed with Vicki’s knowledge of weathered steel finishes. Her relationship with numerous art fabricators was a valuable resource to the team and the project. Vicki is enthusiastic and passionate about her work and it translates to amazing works of art that enrich communities.”
