A sculpture that once hung on an upstairs wall of the former Commons downtown has emerged from storage to find a new home at Central Middle School in Columbus.
Now, hundreds of students pass the multicolored cylinders before, between and after classes five days a week, enjoying what the late local artist Catherine Burris created in 1994.
“She would be very honored if she were here,” said Burris’ daughter, Emily Hartmann. “Mom wanted to inspire people to think differently.”
Burris, whose artwork includes the murals at the Jackson Place condominiums and the downtown Dairy Queen, created her “Transition” sculpture during a time of personal transition, when doctors diagnosed her with breast cancer, Hartmann said.
