Our Story

How do you come up with an idea to do a fun public art project made out of giant buttons? Well, you start with a panda, yes panda, that cute little bear. So, one afternoon I told my partner “John, I think I want to do a public art project in Gwinnett County with decorated pandas, like the cows and turtles, but instead pandas”. His response… “great idea, but why don’t you use buttons?” Looking very puzzled I asked him “what do buttons have to do with pandas?”. I quickly got a history lesson that Gwinnett is named after Button Gwinnett, an original signer of the Declaration of Independence. I thought John was kidding and had to Google what he told me, and what do you know, after living in Atlanta for over 38 years I had no idea that there was someone name Button Gwinnett. So, the button art sculpture was born.
