The largest neon work in North America, this neon and glass sculpture was created by Artist Keith Sonnier in close collaboration with the building’s architect, James Ingo Freed. The work is integrated into the Atrium’s two metal curvilinear curtain walls. Monumental in scale the piece stands at 49 feet high by 30 feet wide and consists of glass plates and neon tubes in the primary colors: red, blue and yellow. The neon tubes incorporate Venetian tinted glass as the material creates a more saturated and superior form of colored light. The sculpture plays on the subtle interchange of light reflected in the glass-covered Atrium, shifting throughout the day and evening with variations in light conditions and the movement of people.
