Ripple Effect and Run River Run
Artists: Deborah Kennedy and Diana Pumpelly Bates (2004)
Ripple Effect, by artist Deborah Kennedy, is a blue concrete platform shaped with naturalistic curves and embedded with quartz boulders designed to suggest a pond. Two bronze inlays represent the ripples formed by throwing a rock into a pond.
Run River Run, by artist Diana Pumpelly Bates, is a gate fabricated from stainless steel water jet cut panels that reference Coyote Creek and its by-pass channel at Montague Expressway. The asymmetrical flowing lines and shapes created by the surface finish references the fork where Coyote Creek overflows into the by-pass channel. The abundance of water, potentially on the cusp of flooding, is meant to inspire in viewers a reverential respect for the unknown power of this life-sustaining resource.
