Item Details
At the heart of The Fillmore Center, one can find this larger-than-life sculpture made by John Atkin. This musical note-like piece, made from medium granite, stainless steel, water, and concrete, is actually based on a musical rhythm like observing a conductor's baton flow and movement. It gives a homey feel to the authentic apartment community.
