- Troy Pillow’s Nine Muses, stainless steel sculptures inspired by mythology, tower like trees over district corners.
Location: 900 South and 900 East attached to pedestals in planters on corners
The busy commercial and residential area of 9th & 9th was transformed with this streetscape upgrade through artwork, landscaping, lighting, and seating. The project was designed to reinforce the identity of the business district. The intersection was designed in a circular pattern using stamped street pavers for more delineation. The landscaped corners hold the pedestals in which the artwork was installed. Benches and light posts are placed throughout the 2 block area to designate the district.
The project scope was to interpret the 9 muses of Greek mythology; the daughters of Zeus & Mnemosyne. Each muse was the inspiration of an aspect of the arts and sciences.
