The large metal trays alternately fill, tip and pour out water so that the whole sculpture is in a kind of graceful random motion. It is relaxing to sit and watch.
There are benches around the fountain where people can sit and chat while the water plays over the sculpture. The gentleman reading the newspaper is also a bronze sculpture.
Located at the corner of 21st and Utica is an outdoor fountain sculpture created by Lin Emery entitled 'Free Enterprise.' . “Emery ‘wanted to evoke the essence of movement-flight, dance, gestures and pantomime.’ To obtain the proper color and workability, Emery selected a specially produced bronze alloy and then combined it with stainless steel.”-From The Artwork of Tulsa by John Brooks Walton
More information on the artist:
“Lin Emery is an internationally recognized sculptor. Her kinetic sculptures produce constantly changing relationships through the ever-varying configuration of their pars as they interpret the lyrical beauty of the natural world. Lin Emery’s forms are abstracted from nature and give visible form to the energies moving through nature.” Link
I remember seeing a similar sculpture in France some years ago but cannot recall just where it was. I need some help with that.
