Barton Rubenstein, 2005, stainless steel and water
Boone County National Bank’s Smiley Lane Bank
1009 Smiley Lane, Columbia, MO
The soothing sight and sound of water cascading down this sculpture into its 18-foot reflecting pool provides the visitor with an experience that appeals to the eye and ear. Indeed, water is as important in this sculpture as the stainless steel that comprises it, perhaps more. It is the flowing wall of water that makes this sculpture a work of “kinetic art.” The water gives it movement, a common feature of many works by this artist.
