Midlothian, Texas | Steel, Concrete, and Bronze | 31’ x 60’ x 60’
The 31-foot-tall sculpture is the first public art installation in the city of Midlothian, and it has two purposes. First, it creates a focal point – a visual landmark piece – around which residents and visitors can gather. And second, it represents the collaborative strength of the community. Adding to the story is Joe, a bronze sculpture of a man positioned at the base, shown tightening the last bolt. While the twisted beams are the business-community collaboration using locally sourced materials, Joe is the human element, and the driving force behind success.
