Cliff Garten creates highly contextual sculpture that intersects with everyday activity and reframes private and public experiences. Use of light, materials and forms result in an environmental solution that reflects subtly rendered narratives of a community’s desires.

He received the Americans for the Arts 2010 Public Art Year in Review Award, the American Institute of Architects Artisan Award, American Society of Landscape Architects, Northern California Chapter Merit Award and has participated in civic art master planning for Saint Paul, Minnesota, Sunnyvale, California, Calgary, Alberta, Canada and the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority.
