This pair of kinetic sculptures, historic steamboat smoke stacks representing man’s presence on the Mississippi River, are encircled by swirling schools of brightly colored fanciful fish, reflecting sunlight, moving with the wind. The gentle kinetic movement of each fish echoes the theme “Living, Flowing Water, Ever-changing” and the Mississippi’s relentless flow to the sea.
