Tree of Knowledge
Joseph Falsetti, 1970, bronze
Off the main parking lot
100 West Broadway, Columbia, MO
Falsetti intends his two-part sculpture to represent knowledge and enlightenment, two concepts essential to the library’s mission. Both sections of the sculpture are attached to the southwest facade of the Columbia Public Library and overlook the Gene Martin Secret Garden. Marking the entrance to the area are the “Gates to the Garden,” wrought-iron panels created by local blacksmith George Robb II in 2002.
