Have you ever seen such a beautiful bus stop in all your life? This exceptional piece, which nods to the art nouveau and deco periods is a work of art meant to be enjoyed by the public and which was created by the sculptor Evelyn Patricia Terry
It's located near the intersection of Fond du Lac Avenue, North Avenue, and 21st Street on the north side of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States.
The artwork was commissioned by the Spirit of Milwaukee Neighborhood Millennium Art Initiative. Terry created the work in collaboration with a team of local artists and its metal and glass construction is a lesson in elegance and simplicity.
We've seen an eclectic mix of styles, materials, and constructions in our journey through these ten important metal art installations, situated throughout the world.
From pieces that are underpinned by the natural world, to sculptures that have a useful purpose and can be appreciated by people in everyday life, our list shows that much joy can be found in metal and that the sculptors associated with these pieces wanted there to be a purpose to them as well as for them to look beautiful, too.
