Station #21 - On the Move

On the Move
 
Listen:

A silvery, art-in-motion sculpture, detailed with Art Deco stampings, honors the evolution of transportation in Asheville, including the city's last remaining brick street ~ North Market.  Bumpy rides on brick-covered avenues, cross-town trolley jumps and sleeper cars unloading at the Biltmore station characterized a city on the rise.  Spin the wheel to the right and listen to the sounds of changing transportation across the last century.  (Designer: Kenn Kotara. Fabricator: Continental Teves, Ed Anderson, plant manager)
