The sculpture is made up of bicycle wheels highlighting the communities cycling interests. LED lighting casts intricate shadows onto the surrounding hard-scape and visitors to the sculpture. The sculpture was designed by the artist Blessing Hancock and fabricated and installed by Gizmo Art Production.
Encompass is an abstraction of Morgan Hill’s topographical location in Santa Clara Valley. The folded panels allude to the surrounding hillsides of the Pacific Coast and Diablo Mountain ranges, with the two curvilinear forms enclose the city between them.

[ 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.
