Hope and Renewal
By Josh Garber
2007 /Powder-coated aluminum
Location: CTA Station: Kimball [Brown Line]
Under the CTA Arts-in-Transit program,
where CTA stands for Chicago Transit Authority..

From the CTA Arts-in-Transit website..
Resembling architectural columns, this pair of sculptures depicts the
lotus blossom, a universal symbol of hope and rebirth. Metaphorically, the
flower-forms symbolize the aspirations of the Albany Park community, which is among the most diverse in Chicago. Artist Josh Garber hand-crafted these sculptures of thousands of aluminum bars and molded each petal of the lotus blossom to function as seating.
