Time and Place
In his original proposal, artist Jim Wallace stated, "Public sculpture, by default, becomes a marker. It is often a designated meeting place or the referenced site of an event. Many times, it was because of an event, the marker (sculpture) is placed in a specific location."
Time and Place is the marker for the Wolf River Bluffs, a planned development with unique visions for both the occupants and the environment. It is the benchmark, depicting the latitude, longitude and elevation above sea level of its specific site. It also serves as a sundial, to mark the passing of time.
The materials the artist has chosen are designed to weather over time, to evoke how everything evolves throughout the years.
