March 12, 2013

Created by A.M. Lilly, this sculpture is named the “Suns and Moons”.  It was commissioned in 2007 as a memorial for Benjamin Thompson, an AIA gold medal architect and designer.  This unique memorial is a wind-activated kinetic sculpture, composed of hoop and disk elements that were inspired by one of Thompson’s watercolor drawings.
