Pantano River Sculpture is in concept development phase for a pedestrian bridge located in Tucson, Arizona. The sculpture evokes the sensation of walking under a river that suspended and flowing above you. The artwork emphasizes the attraction we have to water in a desert environment. The concept model reveals how blue and orange panels will diffuse the sunlight and cast a colorful glow throughout the space.
