Historical Context:
"The major theme of 'Arch VII: Valley' is vitality and order in balance. It is a poignant metaphor for ongoing life in the modern world. In this sense the sculpture is appropriate for Grand Valley State University where it would be seen as an entry and exit to a place in which dynamic learning occurs, and where the ongoing flux of life is in an ever-changing tide. The arch itself suggests passage of time, of season, of age from youth to maturity, passage from one generation to another, from one landscape to another. The arch implies a journey, a quest for discovery, for knowledge... Clothed in silence, 'Arch VII: Valley' transcends time and celebrates the past, present, and future." -Susanna Linburg
