899 North Leonor K. Sullivan Blvd., under the Martin Luther King Bridge
Part of the Visual Arts Tour
The Mississippi River was a major North American inland highway for Native Americans, fur trappers, Civil War armies, steamboats and commercial barges. Vessels of all sizes and shapes were built along its banks, and its bed is littered with their skeletons. This work, like “Future Perfect,” places a ship within a grove of trees, but the message here seems more contemplative. The vessel here seems to represent all of the people who lived along these banks, passing into time as the river rolls on.
