Westward



This stainless steel sculpture is located in Bicentennial Commons at Sawyer Point near the Serpentine Wall along the Ohio River.  Created by abstract sculptor David von Schlegell in 1980, this piece represents the spirit of those pioneers during the expansion to the west and the role that Cincinnati played in it.  The sharp edges of the sculpture are said to symbolize a farmer’s plow or a boat and sail.
