The newest piece of public art for RSD schools has been installed at its new home at Leona Libby Middle School.
The ball-shaped stainless steel sculpture, named "Nucleus," was designed and constructed by British Columbia-based artist Bruce Voyce. It depicts the nucleus of a droplet-shaped water molecule with a design rooted in scientific theory. The piece is also intended to tie into concepts of particle and wave theory as well as the nature of water and its connection to the geological history of the Mid-Columbia.
A grant from ArtsWA, the state arts commission, paid for the piece as part of its program to install public art at schools and other public facilities. Students, parents and staff worked with ArtsWA and Mr. Voyce to develop the design for the finished artwork.
