Lyra

Artist: Bruce White
Location: Burns Park

This aluminum sculpture consists of three legs that intertwine to create an interlocking abstract design.  Originally painted blue, the sculpture that was dedicated in 1980, now maintains a brown patina.  Bruce White’s sculptures are created out of materials that lend themselves to permanence.  His outdoor sculptures can be found throughout the country, from Texas to Wisconsin, and Florida to California.  His work can be found at Chicago’s O’Hare airport and in the country of Sweden. Bruce White’s work has been described as “an elegant union of ancient symbolism and contemporary science.” His preferred materials are stainless steel and aluminum, although he has created works in bronze and granite.
