Laminated Wood, Corten Steel, and Live Plant

Location: Northeast corner of College St. and Market Ave.

Natural Balance is a permanent piece that was acquired in 2018. Natural Balance was a part of the 2017-2018 collection. The sculpture was created by California artist Jeffrey Barrett.

Natural Balance is intended to be installed where a combination of the natural and build environments mesh together. The balance is the interaction between the built environment and the natural. Bringing together a sculptural piece that questions these relationships sparks imagination and thought how one perceives their environment. Materials are made from durable natural resources. The wood in the sculpture is long lasting and durable without warping or decay (Accoya) and the corten steel box represents how natural materials change in different environments through the patina process.
