Touch home, reach sky by Maria Salenger/Jones Studio

Artfully integrated into the redesign of the downtown library entry, this installation features 45 sculptural steel books that celebrate the region's pre-history and ancient and contemporary cultures. From natural elements like stars, plants, trees, trails and mountains, to railroad and Route 66 imagery, the colorful laser cut sculptures tell a story as they lead visitors to the entrance. At night, an amber glow reveals the books' own constellations of light and pattern. The universal forms reflected are a reminder of coming together and all that we must learn.
