Stainless Steel. 24' x 18' x 22'. Public Art Fund. Described in Artforum as “a monumental, futuristic steel crossbow mounted above a staircase that seems to have come from either a lighthouse or a ship,” Pilot Bridge’s form derives from the ethereal qualities of nature and the hard edge of technology. The sculpture has a granite bolder base and weighs a total of 45,000 pounds.
