    Life Spiral

    Artist: John Rohlfing
    Date: 2001
    Material: Cast, enamel aluminum
    Location: Wexler/Grant Community School. 29 Foote Street.

    Clearly Canton, Connecticut-based artist John Rohlfing intended the large scale objects floating around the spiral to suggest a "collective educational journey" that would inspire students of all ages, young and older alike. The spiral, painted alternatively in black and white stripes, pulsates through space, with book, pencil and other education related objects hovering around the energy.
