The Colossus is Created!
New York City Sculpture artist James Tyler completed his fifteen foot tall ceramic creation for the Union Plaza park. The Colossus, a giant brick head, consists of more than 300 individually shaped bricks stacked in concentric circles, layer upon layer, and used over ten tons of red clay.
Lincoln will be home to one of the largest free standing ceramic sculptures ever made. Union Plaza will not be completed until 2011, however installation of The Colossus may come as early as Fall of 2010! Keep your eyes peeled for the masterpiece in the middle block of Union Plaza, between “P” and “Q” streets.
