Chosen sculpture info:

'The Test of Time' - by John E. Bannon

This piece was created to encourage physical interaction, it features three separate, overlapping steel arch structures skinned in bronze that anchored to a poured foundation appears to float above the ground.

The Test of Time was designed to complement the landscape and surrounding architecture, it adds to a sense of place within The Crossroads. Bannon noted that "the openness of the composition, absence of a base, and low profile were executed to project a sense of approachability, and invite and encourage interaction."
