Owner: University of Nebraska Medical Center

Additional Information: This piece of art -- which was paid for entirely by private donation -- is part of overall plans for UNMC's academic campus. Omaha philanthropists Ruth and Bill Scott made the lead donation on this piece. The tower – the first artistic piece done by world-renowned artist James Carpenter in Nebraska – is considered a key component in UNMC’s academic campus. The tower was designed to reflect the beautiful effects that occur in the Nebraska sky. It combines stainless steel and natural light to embody UNMC’s scientific character and the transient qualities of Nebraska’s skies. If it’s a bright sunny day, it will appear to shimmer. At dusk, it will reflect the variety of colors that are in the sky. In many places in Nebraska, the clouds and sky seem to merge with the ground and Carpenter wanted to capture that effect with the piece.

Additional Information: This piece was donated to UNMC by Fred and Eve Simon. Fletcher Benton is well known for his large metal sculptures, many of which seem to defy gravity in their precariously balanced forms. At the same time, his early career as a commercial sign painter led him to an appreciation for the purity of the Roman alphabet and inspired him to create his own set of letters and numbers. These pieces can be found across the country.
