“Renewal Flows Like A River” sculpture acquired by new Lincoln Public Library

Uncategorizedno comments

The result of over six years of dedicated work by Lincoln citizens and their supporting partners, the Lincoln Public Library at Twelve Bridges is “not just another pretty face.” Along with a state-of-the-art computer setup, inspired architectural design, thousands of library books and publications, and a jewel of a setting, the library is now home to outstanding works of art from local artists.

The first interior art acquisition and installation for the grand opening is a spectacular eight foot long steel and kiln-formed glass river sculpture by landscape sculptor Deanna Marsh. “The architecture of the space, its interior curvilinear walls and angles and color palette are a perfect support for the forms, line and color of my river sculpture,” said Marsh. “I am very pleased to have my work in this thoughtful, rich setting.” Beneath the sparkling river of glass are two comfortable reading chairs and a table, inviting patrons to relax into their reading material while being reminded by the sculpture of the beauty of the natural environment. Marsh’s sculpture is inspired by long hikes in the American River canyon and years of working with glass and metal to achieve the right color palette and feel of the local landscape.

This art was selected by a committee named by the Director of Library Services for Lincoln, Darla Wegener, to enhance the gracious and beautiful atmosphere at the site. The library’s grand opening is October 20th from noon to 5PM.
