Circumspect



On Fifth Street across from the convention center tucked in right off of the street is the sculpture designed by local artist Stuart Fink who created this sculpture in 1985. With the construction of an office/retail building on the corner of Fifth and Elm Streets and the building of a parking garage, an open space was left between them and the city was looking for something to fill this space. The city commissioned Fink to build a sculpture to fill the area. Originally intended to be temporary, the sculpture outlasted its expectancy.

The sculpture is 28 pieces of concrete which is interlocked in a maze of arcs, levels, and planes meant to resemble an abstract cityscape. It is intended as a functional piece where it is not only art, but a place to sit and rest or play.
