This narrative Centennial artwork, created by the team of Bergen, Cherkasky and Bailey, is made up of three large metalwork panels on an angled concrete base and features a coal locomotive, coal car and a caboose that represent the past. The three six by nine foot panels are readable from both sides so the artwork does not create a “front” or “back” side. The middle of the three flanking panels will be situated parallel to Excalibur Road and the other two panels will be placed at angles away from the road, similar to the existing Centennial Sign is placed.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
