"Illinois sculptor Bruce White has long been fascinated by astronomy. His PYXIS abstract sculpture shares the name of a constellation of stars in our solar system. Its vertical orientation and striking architectural scale draw the eye upward, past the building façade, and provide a dynamic link between the building, the ground and the sky. The sculpture’s clean lines and smooth blue enameled surface create a bold accent against the deep red painted steel exterior of the fire station."
