Tomorrow's Wind

Tomorrow's Wind by sculptor Melvin Edwards

Sculptor Melvin Edwards
Thomas Jefferson Park, Manhattan

This abstract welded steel piece featuring a polished disc and crescent-like shape are indicative of the sculptor's large-scale public art pieces, which tend to feature immense shapes that conjure up images from the natural world. The disk was designed to be tilted so it can reflect sunlight as the sun moves across the sky during the day.
