Untitled (Egalmah Series)
1983


Project Area: CBD-South Park
Project:  The Skyline
Project Location:  600 W. 9th Street

Description:

Framed by the foliage of trees next to the Skyline building is the geometrical curiosity of Guy Dill's sculpture from the "Egalmah Series." Made from precast multi-colored concrete, the sculpture is 15'h x 15'w. Its solid forms are placed one on top of the other, giving the sculpture both a sense of stability and precariousness.
