"Looking Up" Statue and St. Louis Science Center in Forest Park
This 33.3-foot, 7,000-pound sculpture was installed by the Gateway Foundation and Acme Erectors construction contractors in 2017. Looking Up represents humans pondering space and the stars, and is the third sculpture in series of three. The first is permanently installed at the Laguna Gloria Campus of The Contemporary Austin, TX. The second is installed on Chicago’s lake front through September 2018.
Looking Up is made of polished stainless steel, and was texturized by a process of molding and lost-wax casting. The artist is a St. Louis native and an alum of Washington University in St. Louis. Looking Up is on permanent loan.
