Day 2 – Light Dodger Installation

Artist Tj Aitken and Joe install the 6-foot diameter IGU glass pieces today. The circle is lead glass sandwiched in hurricane glass and louvered to spill wind.  Steel and architectural concrete with auto glass 20×10.3×4.7 feet, Light Dodger is a lighted abstraction of two Dodge fenders with large lens like forms of stained glass illuminated by hidden LEDs. The concrete surfaces have polished automotive window and mirror glass from Dodge cars. (click on images for slide show)

About Reed Brothers

I am a co-owner of the former Reed Brothers Dodge in Rockville, Maryland. Lewis Reed, the founder of Reed Brothers Dodge was my grandfather. We were a family-owned and operated car dealership in Rockville for almost a century. I served in the United States Air Force for 30 years before retiring in the top enlisted grade of Chief Master Sergeant in July 2006. In 2016, I received the Arthur M. Wagman Award for Historic Preservation Communication from Peerless Rockville for documenting the history of Reed Brothers Dodge in both blog and book format. This distinguished honor recognizes outstanding achievement by writers, educators, and historians whose work has heightened public awareness of Rockville’s architectural and cultural heritage, growth and development.
