dc.description Good. Sides curled.
dc.description Suspended from the skylight over the library central stairwell, this hanging artwork contained niches for potted plants (seen in photo). While creative, the artist did not account for lack of sunlight, indifferent watering, dust, and the inability of staff to reach the artwork. Eventually the plants died. Information details courtesy of Doug Vaisey.
