Imagination Gives Us Wings

Imagination Gives Us Wings

by Larry Kirkland (1994)

In 1994, Scottsdale Public Art commissioned Larry Kirkland to create a public art installation for the recent renovations to Civic Center Library. Funded by the Percent for Art fund, the sculpture includes a suspended quill, the pair of lights - and a bird cut out in the roof. There is an ink well located on the lower level. The title of the piece comes from the quote, ”So many possibilities let imagination give us wings” by Emily Dickinson.
