Attraction Overview

by Eric Nordgluen — Indianapolis, Indiana

Mr. Nordgluen is interested in the canoe as an associative object that can bring to mind issues that relate to history, exploration, and the importance of our waterways.  The topiary characteristics of the canoe are intended to emphasize the importance of nature, growth, and the relationship to the White River.  The aluminum construction of the canoe is contemporary and relates to technology.  The wood stand is reminiscent of historic trestle or bridge construction and establishes a link to the past.  It is the artist’s hope that each person who views the sculpture has an opportunity to contemplate their ideas and attitudes about these topics, in order to consider their relationship to the world we live in.  $ TBD
