Public Utility Forum “West Room”
Buster Simpson, around 1993 or 1995
Area designed as a social gathering place, the outdoor forum features podiums strategically placed at opposite ends facing one another and resemble human shapes whose outstretched hand symbolize fellow man giving each a “helping hand”. In the palm of each hand is a “nickel for your thoughts”. The Room is filled with “A” shaped benches that swivel and feature photographs taken on-site before and after construction, with light fixtures overhead designed in the same human shape as the podiums “shedding light” on all who enter Buster’s room.
Date created: 1993 or 1995
