Ad Astra, 2005
Mark di Suvero was inspired by the many construction sites of New York City, which was undergoing dramatic changes in the 1960s and ’70s, as skyscrapers of glass and steel replaced the older architecture of years past. The artist titled this sculpture Ad Astra, which is a Latin phrase meaning “to the stars.” The sculpture balances heavy metal girders and defies gravity, and in NorthCourt, Ad Astra can be viewed from nearly every angle.
Located on Level One in NorthCourt, between Nordstrom and Macy's.
