Artist Statement:

WE picks up where YOU left off in 2020. This rotating 32-sided polygon symbolizes the Earth. Every facet has been hand-carved. The viewer is encouraged to think about the billions of interesting people in this world and how each individual has been uniquely created. In a way, similar to the individually created panels on the sculpture.

The artist would like to thank the following businesses for help in the creation of WE: J. Neubert Welding, D & K Powder Coating, and Rustoleum.
