Hope and Renewal
Josh Garber
Powder-coated aluminum
2007, Arts in Transit

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.
