Seth Godard

BFA University of Iowa, guides the project through fabrication by overseeing its construction while maintaining its schedule.



Nathan Overley

BFA Alfred University, leads the

development of the technical design required to realize the project: the 3D Model, specifications and files for fabrication and installation.

Vector was started by three sculptors, Barry Hehemann, Steve Mueller, and Mike Wilkie, who wanted to play a role in the making of public art. Several artists have joined the company since then. Three of whom now lead the company as the next generation of owners.


The continuation of Vector means that every new project is informed by over forty years of past collaborations.

We pride ourselves on building long lasting relationships with artists and designers over the span of their careers. Vector is privileged and excited to have worked with clients representing a wide range of aesthetics.
