Florida’s Sunny Southern Gulf Coast Gains A New Artist
Venice, Fl – 3/2/2016 /// Scott Prentice of the Black Hills of South Dakota has relocated and settled into the Sunny Southern Gulf Coast community of Venice, Florida and has comfortably been welcomed into this beautiful community. Scott a known and featured artist at our nation’s Shrine of Democracy; Mount Rushmore National Memorial relocated permanently to Venice in 2014. He has left a lasting legacy to much of the Black Hills in all of the many forms of artistry that he left behind. His design and artwork in corporate logos that are on everything from business signs, trucks, and porta potties to our nation’s national memorial.
Scott has left a lot behind for all of us to remember and see. He arrived back in the Black Hills after his service in the U.S. Army in 1983 and worked with his family in the real estate and residential construction industry for about 8 years then went to work with Bruce Lien at Concorde Gaming, Inc. through the early 90’s as their General Manager and Senior Vice President in new business development and project construction. During his career at Concorde, Scott was instrumental in contract negotiations and construction development with Four Bears Casino in Newtown, ND and taking the company into the Louisiana gaming route market. Scott left Concorde gaming in 1995 to pursue is own en devours and passions in the glass arts and opened up a private business and studio called Majestic Glass & Sign.
Majestic Glass & Sign was an instant success and was a fresh new balance to the building trades and industry. Scott and Majestic Glass & Sign went on to win Master Craftsman award from the Construction Industry Council for his work at Mount Rushmore. Scott’s glass and art work have been placed in many homes and businesses through out the Black Hills. Mount Rushmore National Memorial will be celebrating it’s 75th Anniversary this year since opening and with that “The Stand” which was completed by Scott in 1996 will be celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary.
Scott is looking forward to whatever the Sunny Gulf Coast can throw at him he says. He’s remaining open minded as to how he will proceed for the next 10 to 15 years till he retires, however he wants to work on some of his neglected passions in photography, sculpturing and painting. He would still like to pursue a full time career in the construction industry either as a supervisor or manager. He said he was leaving some of that in the hands of divine providence and the direction the wind was blowing.
