This sculpture creates a contemporary visual connection to the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Monument Circle, and it provides a sense of continuity along the South Meridian Street corridor. The spirals and circles of the piece, which stands in what was once the middle of Meridian Street, allude not only to Monument Circle, but also to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Gummer is an Indianapolis native.
