ORLANDO, Fla. — Harvey and Carol Massey, and their family, are proud to sponsor one of the eight recently unveiled sculptures that now grace the downtown area around Lake Eola. The sculpture “Union,” by artist Ralfonso Gschwend, is a wind-driven kinetic stainless steel/aluminum sculpture which features multiple "wings" that move in an unpredictable fashion. As the wings rotate in the wind, they intersect on different levels and in numerous places, creating a moving play of light, shadow and reflections. The public can walk underneath the 60ft tall "wings" as they slowly turn.
“Massey Services proudly supports the arts community and we are pleased to be a part of See Art Orlando,” said Harvey Massey, Chairman and CEO of Massey Services. “The development of this Public Sculpture Project, along with our new performing arts center, establishes Orlando as a vital and vibrant arts community, provides a source of pride for our residents, and promotes growth and prosperity within the Central Florida Community.”
The sculpture is lit with LED lighting so it is visible day and night. Located on the corner of Robinson St. and Eola Drive in Downtown Orlando, Union holds a prominent place at the northeast corner of Lake Eola Park.
