That public art can transport us
The City View Sculpture Park is nestled deep behind the sprawling Metropolitan arts complex in southwest Atlanta, and features six kinetic sculptures by Atlanta-born artist Zachary Coffin. The view from the park spreads out from downtown, over the gold dome of the Capitol and the Olympic flame, to Midtown. Our favorite of the moving artworks is "Rock Spinner," a massive boulder perfectly balanced and secured atop a rotating pivot. Start off spinning the rock slowly, then go faster and faster — it'll make you feel Herculean.
