Sculpture and Public Art
Gale Fulton Ross is a multidimensional talent, whose creative expressions traverse multiple media. In the late 2000s she was awarded a grant, backed by the National Endowment for the Arts, to create a monumental work of Public Art to anchor the revivalist urban design of the city of Opa-Locka, Florida. Her concept was realized in the form of the sculpture called Miss Mary, and the Public Art project called One Story.
The final piece was a 30-foot tall, stainless steel lattice in the form of the bust of an wizened and elderly woman, a symbol of generational affection and wisdom. The statue conceals a time capsule containing memorabilia contributed by community residents.

New works include three clay "table top" sculptures, designed by the artist for the Keepsakes Exhibition, May-June 2018.
Fulton Ross works with a variety of materials in crafting her sculptures, including clay, stone, wood, and recycled materials.
