Public Art of the Week

Galactic Stardust

These lacy intersecting planes of welded steel represent the opposing forces of fragility and strength -- forces each of us can recognize in our own lives and in our communities. The sculpture also resembles a rock formation found throughout the Rockies, commonly known as a desert rose. Notice how the delicate structure and crystalline sparkle of the sculpture echo the melt patterns of snow on Pikes Peak, visible directly behind the sculpture when you are facing west.
