BRIDGES OF FAITH, HOPE AND CHARITY, stainless steel and bronze, 32’ x 20’

The sculpture is a large, freestanding, environmental sculpture which is created to capture a sense of spiritual hope and glory. The sculpture composition is environmental, and captures a place for patients and the public to gather for peace, calm and healing. The sculpture rests on two concrete bases, one where there is a possibility for a water fountain and flower landscaping.
