Impermanent Column - Sculptures
Featured In University of Illinois at Springfield, Springfield, IL
Local artist Thomas Skomski did “Impermanent Column" (cast concrete, 252" x 228" x 84"; 1993) for the University of Illinois, Springfield. The university is adjacent to the state capital, and that location is central to the sculpture's concept. The generic neo-classical column found in government architecture becomes destabilized, or impermanent here. The piece is a monument to change and was sponsored by the school's art in architecture program.
