Reach for the Stars

Sculpture (INTERIOR)

University of Central Florida

About the Artwork

Three bronze beams undulating in form stand inside a round pool. A constant stream of water glides uniformly over the surface of the beams and stars burst from the tops. As a result, the sculpture appears to dance in a constant state of flux. (13’ x 2’ x 6’ with 6’ diameter water pool)
