Copper Flag


Recently I noticed a shiny artwork in front of a corporate office building.  I'm not sure if it's a new piece or if I just hadn't noticed it before but, it caught my eye this time.  The building is called Missouri Falls probably because it's located on 7th Street and Missouri.



From across the street it appeared to be a giant copper flag waving in the breeze.

































So, I went across the street to take a closer look.  Not only is it a sculpture but it's a fountain too with water running down through that crease on the left side and into a pool below.

I couldn't find any artist's name associated with it.  Too bad, it's quite attractive.

A striking sculpture, I like it... very dynamic.

It definitely is a different kind of sculpture and fountain combined. I am also struck by the sharp symmetry of the building.

It's a great sculpture in every way and the copper looks great against the backdrop of plate glass in the offices.
Great photos!

The sculpture looks fantastic in front of the building and copper was a great choice for the flag. Very nice find and photography, Sharon.
