Four unique 1,000-pound sculptures have been installed on the previously empty pedestals or plinths of the Broad Street Bridge, on the west edge of downtown Columbus.
The bridge, built in 1991, was originally designed with sculptural elements in mind, but they were never completed. The new plywood spires were created by California-based sculptor David Best and will be on display through December 2012. Best's temporary project brings new life to Columbus's major downtown bridge.
Made of computer-cut plywood, each of the four "Bicentennial Towers" is 16 feet tall and 8 feet in diameter. The towers are among the 13 public art projects in FINDING TIME: Columbus Public Art 2012, which is taking place in public spaces, plazas, parks, streets, and alleys in a 360-acre area of downtown surrounding the Statehouse and along the riverfront.
