Bright Star, Dark Star Becoming As It Ends..

An iconic sculpture reflects this station’s title and location, near the Clark Planetarium. Adams arrived at a modified sphere to communicate a version of our universe, beautifully crafted of stainless steel and resting on a base of Utah sandstone. The sphere has represented the Universe to many peoples in many eras. Adams’ version includes elegant details of the fabricated stainless mesh with the support bars adapted into the sculpture itself. As a crowning element, the rim of the sphere sports cast bronze stars, completing the allusion to our planet and its relationship to the endless sky above.
