Did you know?

Hunt has completed more public sculptures than any other artist in the United States.


A master of welded and cast metal sculpture, Hunt creates abstract works that often reference nature. Describing this early example, the artist said, "I wanted to give an impression of forms being lifted and projected upward by the rod rising from the base, which I think of as a kind of energized line, partly a stem and in part a trajectory."
