Location: Mid-Town; UNMC Campus, 42nd and Emile It is west of the Harold M. and Beverly Maurer Center for Public Health. It is located on what was formerly 40th Street midway between Dewey Avenue and Emile Street.

Owner: University of Nebraska Medical Center

Additional Information: This piece of art -- which was paid for entirely by private donation -- is part of overall plans for UNMC's academic campus. Omaha philanthropists Ruth and Bill Scott made the lead donation on this piece. The tower – the first artistic piece done by world-renowned artist James Carpenter in Nebraska – is considered a key component in UNMC’s academic campus. The tower was designed to reflect the beautiful effects that occur in the Nebraska sky. It combines stainless steel and natural light to embody UNMC’s scientific character and the transient qualities of Nebraska’s skies. If it’s a bright sunny day, it will appear to shimmer. At dusk, it will reflect the variety of colors that are in the sky. In many places in Nebraska, the clouds and sky seem to merge with the ground and Carpenter wanted to capture that effect with the piece.

Vessel , 2011

by Les Bruning


Mediums: Stainless Steel, LED Lights

Location: Mid-Town; 1919 Aksarben Drive. Located n the NE corner of Aksarben Dr and Frances St.

Owner: Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska

Additional Information: It's a faintly V-shaped piece and has cutouts swirling around the metal exterior. Its center section glows a vibrant neon blue when darkness sets. Bruning said the shape of the piece is loosely based on the familiar medical symbol of two snakes swirling around the central staff." "The cutouts on the piece mostly deal with ecological issues and man's relationship with nature: endangered sturgeon fish swim around the base, men swim around the middle, and eagles and hawks fly around the top. Vessel uses the basic form of a vessel as a metaphor for the sum of ones life and experiences. Both on the interior spiral ribbons and in the exterior skin, there are repeating patterns of pallid sturgeons, human swimmers and hawks and eagles. In our cycle of life the see our species endangering the pallid sturgeons that enhabit the Missouri River. The human swimmers represent man in the immediate balance with nature and the hawks and eagles are thriving survivors of decades ago abuse of pesticides. The cut out forms create an ephermal quality in which we sometimes see the interior forms and at other times the lighting conditions only allow us to real the images on the skin. At night the interior lighting creates a blue glow.
