Permanent Works

Iris of Memory (2020)
William Nemitoff

Iris of Memory is an interactive light art installation recognizing the life and contributions of local artist and teacher Deborah Vorhoff. As viewers draw closer to the flower,  the  light  within  glows  brighter,  providing  a  visual  indication  of  the  power  of  memory to connect us to life, even if their presence is no longer physically with us.

 

Turning: Prayer wheels for the Mississippi River (2017)
Michel Varisco

Featured in the Prospect.4 Biennial and the first public sculpture to be dedicated on the Greenway, Turning blends social and environmental activism with interactive sculpture, where the history of the land itself is an integral component of the piece. Featuring three, 9 foot, stainless steel “prayer wheels,” visitors can spin the cylinders to emit blue light.
