If you've driven by the Hilltop Hotel recently, you may have noticed a new addition to the median between Trinity Drive and Central Avenue.
The object in question stands about 18-feet-high and is made of aluminum and sports a purple and blue paint job.
The sculpture titled “Nexus” was installed at its current location on Sept. 3 and was created by Lyle London of Art in Metal, based in Tempe, Ariz.
The installation of “Nexus” was a long time coming, since the County Council approved the purchase and installation of the sculpture at a Dec. 6, 2005, Council meeting.
The approval was based on a recommendation they received from the Art in Public Places Board. Stephani Johnson, board liaison, said that the Board actually began discussion regarding the purchase of a new piece for the county collection in the fall of 2003.
At that time, Board Member Min Park was appointed to chair an ad hoc subcommittee to explore options for such a purchase.
