The Sound of Rain

2011, Steel, aluminum, 55"w x 18"h x 27"d

This outdoor bench is meant to celebrate the sound of rain, sleet or hailstone by amplifying it acoustically. When the rain drops hit the seating surface, they create the “music” of nature. The bars are not placed in order as a usual xylophone; instead, they are juxtaposed to make different pitches spontaneously.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
