Ripple, by artist Barbara Baer, is an aluminum and poly carbonate structure sitting 6' tall. Baer uses a fascination with spatial design and interaction of materials and light to create this dynamic sculpture. The forms were developed to contrast a geometric silhouette against an organic one. The sculpture has the interesting quality of looking quite different from varying angles. It certainly adds color and brightness to an otherwise dull city street corner.
Baer's sculpture sits on the north west corner of Public Road and Emma Street in Old Town Lafayette. For more information about Lafayette's Art on the Street Sculpture Walk, visit the city's website. This piece, a part of the Art On the Street Sculpture Walk is available for purchase, $5,000.
