Walking to the Sky: GUEST BLOG

Pittsburgh, Carnegie U Pole Art

“Walking to the Sky” by Carnegie Mellon University alumnus Jonathan Borofsky

The sculpture was inspired by stories his father used to tell him about a friendly giant who lived in the sky. A father and son in each story would ascend  into the sky to talk to the giant. In this sculpture a father and son along with another onlooker can be seen observing a number of people walking up the 100’ tall pole to the sky.

Borofsky describes this work as “. . . a portrait of all of humanity rising upward from the earth to the heavens above – striving into the future with strength and determination. Ultimately, this sculpture is a symbol for our collective search for wisdom and awakened consciousness.”

Definitely worth seeing.
