In developing the public art for the Sorenson Unity Center, the artists addressed the themes of transformation, change, adaptation, growth, inclusiveness and unity. In abstract form, the public art, in five pieces, unfolds from a simple universal shape into a butterfly suspended from the interior ceiling. Fabricated of aluminum and steel, the artists engaged form, color and density of the material to create the transition from the standing sculpture outdoors through the two pieces attached to the exterior wall to the two interior pieces that float overhead as visitors enter the building.
