You have my permissions. All of them. Though technically it is mgorman's artwork.

The problem - it involves welding and I don't weld!

So I can either a) learn or b) hire someone talented to do the actual welding of the work.

I actually do want to learn to weld at some point but I'm thinking a public sculpture on Broad St isn't where I want to test my skills. I'm going to toss the job to the ADV community first - any of you know how to weld and want a cool side gig? The grant will pay you. And you will be able to see your work as public art!

The piece - life size horse made of old street signs (I'm getting access to the ODOT salvage sign yard - how cool is that???? Trying to find as many US 40/National Rd signs as possible) Horse will appear to be like a carriage horse tied to a modern day parking meter. He'll probably be on a sidewalk but I'm trying like hell to have them put him in the street. I can pound and bend steel all day, I just need a welder to stick stuff where I want it to go. It will take place this summer, I think the opening day/deadline is Sept 8. The grant just got awarded so there's still a lot of details to work out. I don't know the exact compound of the signs at this point.

Send a PM to fireproof7 . He is an amazing welder/artist/all around good guy.

Had a great ride today at Alum Creek (Phase 2), which I've never biked before. Really fun trail, lots of obstacles, drop offs and skinnies and a nice flow to it. We should do a ride there, it's not a ball breaker there's not a lot of hills but it undulates up and down and has a lot of structure like wall rides and boardwalks that are really high up.

I'd be up for that. With a little notice I could catch you there through the week.

I'm free every day after noon pretty much, so any day works for me and most weekends so if you wanna ride it just pick a day that works for ya and I'll likely be up for it. The only downside of Alum is that COMBO opens/closes the trails according to conditions and if it's wet at all it's a no-go. They post the conditions online every day or so. The part I rode today is better drained so it's usually open, but the Phase 1 seems to hold water and is closed more than it's open. On a good day, you could ride both (6 miles a piece), but it has to be very dry for that to happen.

It's easy, just break your leg and sit around for 7 months with nothing to do but post comments about how lucky everyone else is.

You may be able to just rivet/bolt the aluminum signs together. Also, you can only bend those so far or they break, I've tried. The seat base on my trials bike is an old street sign.
Little bit of heat goes a long way in bending sheet aluminum.

I would never tell an artist their business, but I would think that using rivets or bolts would be the better bet. If the theme is old street signs, the heat from welding is going to destroy the "sign" part.

Welding aluminum requires a special welding wire and gas to keep it from burning. Moreover welding "dirty" aluminum is very hard. When I was working in a weld shop I tried to patch weld a boat I have and learned first hand how hard it is.

Yup, I know how to TIG, and I had a spool gun on my old Millermatic, but I'm no expert. I've also seen it done with a torch.
