GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) A southcentral Kansas town that was nearly wiped out by a massive tornado in May 2007 has added a new sculpture to a park that stands on the grounds of its leveled city hall.
The 5-foot-tall spiral of stainless steel shaped around an elegant blue glass form is the third sculpture to be installed at Starlight Park in Greensburg, The Hutchinson News reports. Called Aurora, its a joint project of glassblower Rollin Karg and metal sculptor Jeff Garrelts. Karg described the hue of blue as a show-stopper.
Erica Goodman, who runs an antique store on Main Street, likes the latest addition to the park. The spiral reminds me of a tornado and the glass is us rising out of that event, Goodman said.
