Skydance at the Western Gate

Suspended in the library’s 54-foot clerestory, this fiber artwork by Gerhardt Knodel represents the intersection of thoughts, past, present and future.

Inspired by the ancient Silk Road, along which materials and ideas traveled from distant civilizations such as China and Rome, the artist’s work reminds us that at libraries, people meet and ideas grow.

Look for a word hidden in the letter fragments!
