Measuring approximately 57 feet wide and 75 feet long, Rubins’ work of art is a colorful composition of numerous aluminum rowboats, canoes and other small river and ocean vessels finessed into a gravity-defying form that is both delicately balanced and precisely engineered. It is one of Rubins’ few works with a permanent home

Also designed by Wegner, hanging lanterns act as a conversation starter between his solar and lunar pieces and provide soft light that cascades down into the lobby
