Marting A. Nehrling (b. 1970, American)
Arrows of Direction, 1989
3 sections, approx. 84x60x39 in. each
This sculpture was the result of a design contest hosted by the Art Department at North Central High School. The artist was inspired by origami, and the folding shapes and skewed lines of the piece create directional movement, suggesting the various paths that graduating students will take in life.
The sculpture was funded by matching grants from the Washington Township School Board and the NCHS Class and Student Councils of 1989.
Nehrling, a native of Indianapolis, lives in Chicago and teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
