Erie St. Plaza, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Painted Steel

Erie Street Plaza faces Lake Michigan. I've been watching sunrises over that lake for much of my life, from Milwaukee beaches to the steel mill docks in Gary and South Chicago. I love the sun coming up over the inland ocean.

 

All of these pieces are flat and cut from one rectangular sheet of steel. The height here is 15 ft but the structure could be scaled to at least 40.
