    The Voyage

    Artist: Peter Busby
    Date: 2003
    Material: Steel rods, liquid bronze
    Location: Nathan Hale School. 480 Townsend Avenue.

    Peter Busby, a sculptor from Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut, designed a series of six dolphins which appear to be floating-actually swimming-their way through the building on their way out to Long Island Sound. Each dolphin sculpture was welded together from numerous steel rods, and weigh between 60-80 pounds each.

    The artist suggests that dolphins are a perfect metaphor "relating to the goals and aspirations of a school environment, including intelligence, sensitivity, communication, interdependence, respect and playfulness."
