Rockford [Sinnissippi Crab - by Gene Horvath]

Sinnissippi Crab - by Gene Horvath
Corten Steel / 3,000 lbs, 24' long
Location: Rock River Rec path, Rockford, IL

From the Rockford Park District brochure..
Rockford resident Gene Horvath created this piece for its present location along the Rock River Rec Path at his own expence. Horvath's works grace many public spaces along the Rec Path. The Sinnissippi Crab consists of steel tubes and rectangles, joined to suggest how the river flows and turns. Designed as a "system" sculpture, meaning the sections can be seen as imitating each other partly, and put together into a meaningful unit. Horvath named it "Sinnissippi Cran" to give some "representational context to basically an abstract sculpture.
