Description: Playground

Resembling a large 3-D puzzle piece, Tony Smith's Playground is an interplay of solids and voids.  If you walk around, you will see it unfold from a solid black wall to a tunnel to a platform.  Its plain black surface does not reflect its environment, but the sculpture frames and defines its surrounding space in the most basic but strongest possible terms.
