Last week we had another successful sculpture install - this time in Hopkins, MN.
The city will be hosting a community-wide opening on June 2nd so stay tuned for details about that! In the meantime, here's a little background: Designed with a nod to the local history of Hopkins, the Moline sculpture subtlety references the Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company (later called Minneapolis Moline) that started the town in 1887. The front narrow tires on the Minneapolis Moline wheels are angled to help with steering in the field. This element is reflected within the Moline sculpture through sculpted glass forms that are interior lit with fiber optic light. Depending on the viewpoint, the internal glass structure transforms from a circle to two angled wheels and back again.
Come see it for yourself at the Hopkins 8th Avenue ARTery (the Northwest corner of 8th Ave S and Excelsior Blvd).
