The Scottsdale Public Art website features photos and information about the art piece in the center of the roundabout at Northsight Boulevard and Hayden Road.
Achen-Gardner Construction crews installed the sculpture, titled Aspire, on April 12. This sculpture is the finishing touch on Scottsdale’s first major roundabout. Inspired by humankind’s leap into flight, Aspire was created through the welding of stainless steel washers. The artwork is a sculpture composed of three unisex, humanoid, futuristic figures. LED lighting gives each figure a different gradation of violet and blue hues for a spectacular nighttime display.
