Molecule Man

Iowa West Public Art from Iowa West Public Art on Vimeo.

If you live in the great state of Iowa or happen to be traveling through "The Hawkeye State", don't forget to visit its southwestern city of Council Bluffs.

The Iowa West Public Art program plans 50 possible sites within Council Bluffs to promote its cultural richness. At one site, a drive through Interstate 29 by the Mid-America Center, will reveal a $1.8 million 50-foot tall aluminum sculpture called Molecule Man created by Jonathan Borofsky. I have been a fan of Borofsky's work ever since seeing his Walk to the Sky & Hammering Man sculptures for the first time back in 2008.

To take a free audio tour of Borofsky's sculptures and works of other well-renowned artists at the Mid-America Center, dial 712-212-9088 from your cell phone and enter the # of the piece. Click here for the informational flyer.

Cell phone audio tours are a product of Guide by Cell at http://guidebycell.com/

Enjoy,
Karen
