Anish Kapoor: Descension

(May 3-Sept. 10, 2017)

Sculptor Anish Kapoor’s public-art installation invites spectators to experience how a seemingly ordinary element like water can behave in an out-of-the-ordinary way. Twenty-six feet in diameter and surrounded by a railing, “Descension” is a continuously spiraling funnel of water that has been treated with an all-natural black dye. Kapoor has created a mesmerizing negative space alive with energy as it bores into the ground.
