Passage is located at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia. Conceived, commissioned, constructed and installed in less than eight months, this fast track water sculpture was a thrilling creative experience. The two leaning glass and stainless steel structures create a gateway to the museum. The texts engraved into the glass by Nelson Mandela and Margaret Meade address the essence for the worldwide struggle of civil and human rights. The water flowing over the glass suggests a third quote by Dr. Martin Luther King: "Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream." This work measures 36' x 24' x 24'.
