Tripodal


Tripodal Artist: James Rosati (1912-1988)
Created: 1970-72 Media: Cor-ten steel
This sculpture is located at Century II Convention Center and can be seen from Douglas Street.
I enjoy looking at the the round convention center with the blue roof, more than the abstract sculpture. This photo is best viewed by clicking to enlarge.

What does it represent is the meaning local?

I really like 'urban' or community art in public places like this. I think the sculptor has quite a challenge in figuring out how to use the space well and also accomodate things like the traffic lights and street lights.

hmmmm.... I wonder what happened to my post? I remember when the tripodal went in, there was quite a controversy. People either loved it or hated it.
